The plans, he said, include a $5,000,000 central library, a $15,000,000 science center and a $5,000,000 classroom and residence facility for the University’s Stern College for Women and the Yeshiva’s Teachers Institute for Women.

Dr. Belkin announced the plans at a dinner where one of the principel guests of honor was Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey. Earlier, at a special convocation, celebrating Yeshiva’s 20th anniversary, Mr. Humphrey was awarded the honorary degree of doctor of humane letters, along with Dr. Donald F. Hornig, professor of chemistry at Princeton University, and Samuel H. Golding, a member of the board of overseers of the university’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
