Specialist Finds Bg OK

A specialist from Beersheba Hospital said today that nothing serious was wrong with former Premier David Ben-Gurion who is ill at his Sde Boker home. Dr. A. Lehman, the hospital’s chief internist was summoned to Sde Boker yesterday by Ben-Gurion’s private physician examine the 84-year-old elder statesman.

Ben-Gurion fell ill last month while vacationing in Tiberias and was hospitalized for a day. Dr. Lehman said his complaints yesterday stemmed from the same cold that he suffered in Tiberias and that he should be well again in a few days.
