Download PDF for this date

The receipt of three government grants for scientific research, totalling nearly $46, 000, was announced here today by Yeshiva University.

One grant, for $15, 857, has been given by the United States Department of Health Education and Welfare to the Yeshiva University Graduate School of Education. This grant, which is renewable, will be used to develop a division of rehabilitation studies to help retarded young adults who can remain in school until the age of 21, as well as emotionally disturbed post-adolescent and handicapped persons.

Two grants, totalling more than $30, 000, are for basic research in physics and biology. The U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research has given one of these grants, for $21, 848, to Dr. Joel L. Leibowitz, a physicist on the faculty of the university’s graduate school of mathematical studies, for study of the behavior of liquids and metals under various non-uniform temperatures and pressures.

At the same time, Dr. Meyer Atlas, of the university’s biology department, received a grant of $11, 400 from the National Science Foundation for study of the development of the embryo of a mouse.
