Hillel President to Visit

Edgar Bronfman, president of the World Zionist Organization and newly elected president of Hillel, the foundation of Jewish campus life, will visit campus April 23.

Bronfman, who is chair of the Seagram Co., will attend a dinner in his honor at Berkeley Hillel, meeting with students and John Cummins, assistant chancellor. He will be accompanied by Richard Joel, international director of Hillel.

Berkeley Hillel is the Jewish student center on campus, providing religious, cultural, educational, political and social programming for Berkeley's 5,000 Jewish students.

Odds Against Clinton?

The Clinton presidency at midterm will be the subject of a panel discussion April 27 at 8 pm in 155 Dwinelle Hall.

Gerald C. Lubenow of the Institute of Governmental Studies will moderate the panel, which will look at the president's track record on domestic programs, legislative initiatives, foreign policy and overall capabilities as a leader.


Richard Treffers, the Astronomy Department's observatory engineer, was omitted in the announcement of the 1995 Educational Initiative Award given to the Astronomy Department for the Undergraduate Instrumentation and Image Processing Laboratory. (See Berkeleyan April 12, page 3.)

"Without Dick's hard work modernizing the Leuschner Observatory equipment, his supervision of the laboratory's computer system and his assistance in actual instruction, the courses and the laboratory would not have succeeded," says Astronomy Chair Jonathan Arons.
