versity (1918), and an M. S. from
the University of Pittsburgh in
1926. During World War I, he was
employed as a research worker by
the Naval Consulting Board;
afterwards by the Westinghouse
Electric and Manufacturing Com
pany. At the age of 24, Joseph
Weil joined the staff of the Uni
versity of Florida in Gainesville
as instructor of electrical engi
neering and physics.
The engineering staff in 1940
totaled 20 persons; today, the col
lege has a teaching and research
staff numbering more than 250.
In the 1930'5, he explored the
possibilities of locating storms by
means of radio static direction
finders. This early pioneering
work done by Professor Weil and
his colleagues in the Department
of Electrical Engineering brought
the University of Florida into
prominence in both the electron
ics and meteorological fields and
eventually in national defense.
In 1934, Joseph Weil became
Head Professor of Electrical En
gineering and 1938 Dean of the
College of Engineering.
The College of Engineering re
ceived the Naval Ordnance De
velopment Award and certificates
of award were presented to the
Dean and members of his staff in
special recognition of the Univer
sity's role in helping to develop
the VT fuze during World War 11.
Among other renowned re
search programs promoted by
Dean Weil was the first civilian
study in the United States utiliz
ing land-based radar for hurri
cane forecasts, which led to the
establishment of the present
meteorological radar forecasting
network in Florida. His early ex
perimentation on “sferics” now
forms the base of the U. S.
Weather Bureau’s system for tor
nado forecasting.
Steadily increasing enrollments
and a steady rise in contract re
search, mainly for the Govern
ment and industry, have attended
the expansion of Florida's engi-

EX-Hitler Aide Seeks
Yugoslav "Volunteers"
For Arab Armies
(Continued from Page 1)
volt was overthrown by the
Allies, whose ranks included
many Palestinian Jews, the Mufti
escaped to Berlin. There he be
came Hitler’s chief propagandist
on Middle East issues. He re
ceived decorations from both Hit
»
ler and Mussolini.
Berlin records reveal that the
Mufti sought to block the escape
of a trickle of European Jewry to
Palestine. He urged concentration
camp gassing of more Jews. His
communications with Heinrich
Himmler are a matter of record.
An active recruiter of Moslems
for the SS, it was in that capacity
which he visited Yugoslavia.
After the war the Mufti’s fac
tion turned up at Lake Success as
the “Arab Higher Committee.” It
actually got recognition on the
United Nations floor.
The Mufti later emerged in Pal
estine, agitating Arabs to take up
arms against Jews. When Israel
triumphed, Jordanian King Ab
dullah indicated a tendency to
make a real peace. But the King
was assassinated. The Mufti was
an instigator of the murder.
ISRAEL APPROVES
REDUCTION IN AIR FARE
RATES FOR TOURISTS
TEL AVIV, (JTA) lsrael last
week-end approved a reduction in
air fare rates and deared the way
for the institution of a special low
fare between New York and Lon
don or Paris. The reduction,
which went into effect Oct. 1, ap
plies to tourists who return to
their point" of departure within 15
days. »
Israel was the last nation to
agree to the rate change because
Israeli officials had insisted that
the reduction should extend to
people who planned to stay up to
23 days, thus making reduced
fares an attraction for visitors
who would have to travel farther
from the United States. Israeli
approval was given for only one
year, thus insuring the new rate
reduction talks would be held by
international airlines next year.
NAZI VICTIMS EXEMPTED
FROM U. S. TAX ON
COMPENSATION FROM
GERMANY
WASHINGTON, (JTA) The
U. S. Internal Revenue Service
ruled this week-end that Jews
and other victims of Nazi persecu
tion now in the United States do
not have to pay Federal income
tax on compensation received
from the German Government for
economic losses. 1
The ruling was requested by a
victim receiving compensation.
The victim’s identity was not di
vulged. The ruling covers funds
paid by the West German Gov
ernment for damage to life, body,
health, liberty, or to a profession
al or economic advancement. It
also covers, as determined by
Bonn authorities, the value of
property lost because of, or seized
by, the Nazis.
