HEBREW UNIVERSITY plans to triple its number of graduates in the area of secondary education, and it already supplies over 90%. The Melton chair was estabUshed with this in mind.

'Menorah BalV Set For Sunday At Martinique Mrs. Max Friedman and Mrs. Phillip Gurwin, presidents respec¬ tively of Zion and Candlelight Chapters of B'nai B'rith, have ex¬ pressed their gratitude to the many civic-minded citizens who have pledged their support to B'nai B'rith philanthropies by making reser¬ vations to attend B'nai B'rith Women's major fund -raising event of the year, Menorah Ball. The 1965 Menorah Ball will be held this Sunday evening, November 7. al Alex Clowson's "Martinique" fering from _acute asthma.

P'NAI B'RITH, America's oldest .ind largest Jewish service organi¬ zation, has a tremendous obligation due to the fact that they support so many major philanthropies.

A three-year-old child was rushed from New York to the National .Jewish Hospital in Denver suf- APPROXIMATE DAILY cost at Bellcfaire in Cleveland is $17.65. B'nai B'rith Women support a Children's Home in Israel which helps refugees adjust to a totally new way of life in that country. Though the cost per child is some $50.00 per week, letters of thanks come in daily from "graduates" who are now living meaningful and useful lives in Israel.

MR. BEN-GURION said that the late Moshe Sharett, Israel's Actmg Premier at the time of the raid knew of plans for the Kybia action but "saw no reason lo object lo it Replying to the charge, Mr. Sha rett's son, Yaacov. published in an other afternoon daily, Maariv, ex cerpts from his father's diary in support of what he said was "distortion" of his father's role in the Kybia affair. In his diary, Mr. Sharett said that, as Acting Premier, he op¬ posed the rclaiialory raid on Kybia but was "over-ruled" by Lavon who told Sharett that Ben-Gurion uivorcd the operation. "Not only had Ben-Gurion given his opinion but it was his opinion which weighed the scales against mc," Sharett declared in his diary. SHARET ALSO described how Ben-Gurion prepared a statement broadcast after the Kybia raid in which the action was attributed to Israeli border settlers who lost pa¬ tience with the repeated murders is 200,000 higher than the total of of 1961.
