Tribute to American Jews for their “generous and unstinting response to all emergencies” in Israel was paid here list night by General Yaacov Dori, president of the Haifa Institute of Technology, at a dinner given in his honor by the American Technion Society.

He told more than 600 guests at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel that Israel has made “miraculous progress” since becoming an independent state in 1948, but that efforts must be intensified “on the security front, the economic front and the social front.” He also emphasized that Israel’s economic structure cannot be strengthened without the technological guidance necessary in the state’s program of industrial and agricultural development.
