Dr. Lee K. Frankel, one of the four Commissioners of the Joint Palestine Survey Commission of the Jewish Agency, accompanied by Dr. Maurice B. Hexter and Dr. Charles F. Wilinsky, are leaving Palestine today on their return to the United States.

When interviewed by press representatives, Dr. Frankel stated that during his stay in Palestine he visited 20 Jewish colonies of different types and that he inquired into all branches of Palestine life. He has obtained a picture of the situation which will enable him to participate in the preparation of the report of the Commission.
