(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The arrival of Dr. Chaim Weizmann in Palestine and the fifth anniversary of the establishment of the Keren Hayesod, the instrument of the Zionist Organization for cultivating Palestine soil, developing industry and maintaining the Hebrew educational system, for which the amount of $10,000,000 was raised in the United States during the past five years, were celebrated here last night at a festival meeting.

Representatives of the Zionist Executive in Jerusalem and the Jewish population in Palestine welcomed Dr. Weizmann on this occasion. Dr. Weizmann in his address stressed the necessity of strengthening the activities of the Keren Hayesod and of the Jewish National Fund. He also touched upon the question of the possibilities for securing a national loan for Palestine and stated that such a loan could be based only on the guarantee of the Keren Hayesod and the Jewish National Fund.
