Brandeis University will break ground on March 1 for new dormitories which will give the college a 90 percent resident student body, Dr. Abram L. Sachar, president of the University, announced yesterday at the 21st annual luncheon of the Jewish Teachers Association. Seven hundred teachers attended the session.

Dr. Sachar also told the group that the institution has received within the past three weeks “enough family gifts to insure scholarships and employment for one-fourth of the student body.” The school has also acquired chairs in biology, chemistry and political science as well as equipped biological laboratories and endowments for exchange fellowships with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he said.
