Budget for 1968 of $10,666,000 Proposed at Rehovoth for Weizmann Institute

A 1968 budget of 32 million Israel pounds ($10,666,000) was presented to the Board of Governors of the Weizmann Institute of Science here today by its chairman, Dr. Dewey D. Stone, of Brockton, Mass. The board is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir on the question of raising funds for the Institute abroad. Mr. Sapir last week called on all Israeli institutions of higher learning to forego their campaigns for funds abroad in favor of the special emergency fund campaign of the United Jewish Appeal to meet Israel’s urgent security needs.
