A grant of $70,000 was made here today by the Ministries of Education and Information towards the construction of a school to be established in Kfar Masaryk in Israel, a Hashomer Hatzair settlement named for the founder of the Czech Republic, Thomas G. Masaryk.
The school will offer academic and vocational training to approximately 200 Jewish orphans from Czechoslovakia. Under the terms of an agreement worked out by government officials and S. Ailon, a representative of the settlement, all equipment for the school will be purchased in this country from the subvention funds granted the school.
