Download PDF for this date

No change was reported this morning in the condition of former Premier David Ben Gurion who was hospitalized yesterday after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage which caused partial paralysis. A bulletin issued by Tel Hashomer-Sheba Medical Center said the 87-year-old Ben Gurion passed a quiet night. He was reported conscious but unable to speak. The hospital bulletin described his condition as serious.

Ben Gurion was visited briefly this morning by Defense Minister Moshe Dayan. A hospital spokesman said his son, Amos, and his daughters, Renana and Geullah, spent the night at his bedside. Ben Gurion is being treated by his personal physician, Dr. Bolislaw Goldman, and Dr. Mordechai Shani, medical director of the hospital.
