The Hadassah-Wizo Organization of Canada transmitted more than $2, 000, 000 to assist nearly 1, 000 institutions in Israel during the past year, delegates to its 18th biennial convention were told.

Pierre Mendes-France, former French Premier, told the convention that Israel was a fine example of the effectiveness of free world financial and technical assistance. The past year, he said, had been a very good one for Israel economically and he forecast continued progress in 1960.

Mrs. Harry Cohen, of Sydney, N.S., and Montreal was elected national president.
