(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

Three hundred young Zionists who are imprisoned in Siberia and elsewhere for their Zionist activity have been given permission to proceed to Palestine. The report of this effect, which was recently published in the “Najer Hajnt” of Warsaw, is confirmed on inquiries made by the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The 300 Zionists are awaiting the receipt of funds which will enable them to proceed to Palestine.

One thousand men and women paid $100 a plate at the dedication banquet last Sunday of the Boston Hebrew Ladies’ Home for Aged. The contributions at the dinner totalled $120,000.
