Jerusalem (Apr. 21)
The Keren Hayesod office here has published a statement to the effect that there is no more vacant land belonging to it, after the establishment of seven new Jewish colonies. The National Fund has, therefore, decided to purchase a new strip of land of 100,000 dunam.
The cultivation of tobacco in Palestine is growing to be a very important industry, giving employment to many new arrivals. The unemployment problem is, therefore, almost solved.
