Malaria in Palestine is controlable and at a reasonable cost, it is declared by the International Health Board of the Rockefeller Foundation in its annual report to the Foundation, giving the results of the survey made by the Board in Palestine since 1922.

“Neglected irrigation ditches have been a pro-## cause of trouble; this can be remedied, as a rule, at small cost, with the result of less malaria and and better crops”, the report states.
