140 Canadians Play Role in Dedicating New Building for Technion

A six-story, $1,500,000 Canada Building of the chemical faculty of Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, was dedicated here today at the Technion campus on Mount Carmel. Participating in the ceremonies were former Premier David Ben-Gurion, Justice Minister Dov Joseph, Mayor Abba Khoushy, and 140 visiting Canadian Jewish leaders who arrived especially for the ceremony.

The new building will house the research department of the Technion chemical faculty, and will include a special glass workshop for the production of instruments for other Technion departments.
