French Consul General Visits Colonies and Schools

“I have the best impressions of the Jewish workers settlements in Degamia and Kinereth,” declared the French Consul General in an interview here with the representative of the Palestinian Telegraphic Agency.

The Consul stated that he intends to visit the other Jewish colonies, especially those which were founded by Baron Edmond deRothschild of Paris.

The Consul stated that he had also visited the schools which are maintained by the Alliance Israelite Francoise and found them well equipped, with teachers of the first rank, and well-attended by pupils who were making much progress.
