(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A strike of the pupils in a Jewish high school here was an event of widespread comment.

The strike developed in the high school, Magen David, founded by the Orthodox organization, Agudath Israel, and came about because the director of the school prohibited the students from joining the Zionist youth organizations, Maccabee and Ha’schomer Ha’zair. The pupils of the upper classes marched from the school as a demonstration of protest.
