Dr. George Wise, president of Tel Aviv University, today warned that, unless the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) and the Government recognize the need for more financial support to Israel’s institutions of higher learning, closing down of faculties and laboratories may result.

Dr. Wise said there is real danger that academic standards would deteriorate, if added funds are not forthcoming. He also called for unification of the individual campaigns in the diaspora for Israel’s institutions of higher learning.
