It was also announced that a 40,000-tree forest in Technion City will be named after Dr. Abraham Tulin of New York for his “monumental and historic assistance” to the development and advancement of the technical school. The board also decided that the new agricultural and engineering school of the Technion will be named for Dr. S. Kaplansky who was its head for many years.

Sensibar, president of the American Technion Society. Valued at nearly $150,000, the grants range from agricultural problems indigent to Israel to various industrial fields.)
