Professor Frank Adams of the University of California and A. T. Strahern of the Bureau of Soils, United States Department of Agriculture, sailed yesterday on the steamer Providence for Alexandria on route for Palestine. Both are members of the group of agricultural experts whose appointment as advisors to the Non-Partisan Palestine Survey Commission was announced last week.

A third member of the group, Mr. Knowles Ryerson, is already in Europe and is expected to reach Palestine shortly.
