See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The American Committee for the Wiezmann Institute of Science today decided to establish a permanent memorial to the late President John F. Kennedy at the Institute in Rehovot. The decision, which was adopted unanimously at a meeting here of the officers of the Committee, called for a memorial “symbolizing and expressing President Kennedy’s profound interest in scientific and technological research for peaceful purposes.”

Abraham Feinberg, president of the Committee, announced today that the organization’s dinner which was to have been held on December 5, has been canceled in deference to the 30-day period of mourning for the late President. Mr. Kennedy was to have been the only speaker at this function.
