JERUSALEM (Apr. 17)
The Robert Szold Center of Applied Science at Hebrew University was established here this weekend in ceremonies which included a round table discussion on procedures for teaching applied science. The New York attorney is president of the Palestine Endowment Funds Inc. which gave $500,000 in his name to set up the center.
A 12-story teaching laboratories building, made possible by a gift of undisclosed size from Louis Mintz, Anglo-Jewish philanthropist and communal worker, was also dedicated at the Hebrew University. The gift was believed to be about 100,000 pounds sterling ($280,000). Speakers at the ceremony included Sir Isaac Wolfson, the British philanthropist, representatives of the British Embassy and Hebrew University President Eliahu Elath.
