The international Board of Governors of the Tel Aviv University whose annual meeting at the university was postponed because of the Yom Kippur War, will meet instead Feb. 4-6, it was announced this week by Victor M. Carter, chairman of the board and president of the American Friends of the TAU. Carter said the rescheduled board meeting was set when he met in Israel recently with TAU officials. In a letter to board members throughout the world, he wrote:

“The present situation of Tel Aviv University closely reflects that of Israel as a whole. While mourning our heavy casualties in the Yom Kippur War, we are resolved to get on with our lives. Since most of our male students and many of our faculty members are still mobilized, we plan to open the academic year with a flexible program designed to cater to one and all.

Among other things, we have made arrangements for the text of lectures to reach our students in uniform wherever they may be.” Contingency plans have been agreed upon to meet the special conditions resulting from the war, including the fact that the largest part of the male student body remains on active military duty.
