Louis A. Pincus, chairman of the Jewish Agency Executive, predicted today that the results of the current United Jewish Appeal campaign in the US may exceed the all-time record set in 1967, the year of the Six Day War. Pincus returned Friday from a visit to the US. While there he was involved in establishing a priority list for the funds available in view of the needs of Israel’s institutions of higher learning. He conferred on that subject with Zionist leaders in the US and Britain.
