The Board of Governors of the Hebrew University, at its opening session today, heard a report on the university’s 1964-65 budget and estimated development expenditures totaling 56, 000, 000 pounds ($18, 888, 000). Eliahu Elath, the University president, said a four-year development plan envisaged a student body of 12.000.

The meeting opened in the presence of Israel’s President Zalman Shazar who was named the university’s honorary president. Premier Levi Eshkol was awarded an honorary doctorate. He called for more pioneering among the intellectuals and stressed that applied research in Israel was falling short of the country’s needs. Other recipients of degrees included Prof. A. Fodor, Justice Samuel Friedman of Canada, Michael Green-blatt of Canada, Harry Seldin of the United States and Lord Marks and Leon Simon of Britain. The last two were awarded their degrees in absentia.
