Tel Aviv U. President Charges Government Discriminates Against His School

The president of Tel Aviv University charged the Israel Government yesterday with discrimination against that institution. Dr. George Wise, speaking on the opening of the new academic year, said his university does not receive the same budgetary allocation from the Government as the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Haifa Technion. Tel Aviv University has a current enrollment of more than 9,000 students compared to over 12,000 at the Hebrew University and 5,600 at the Technion. The latter, Israel’s oldest and largest technical college, began its academic year yesterday.
