(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The offer of Canadian Hadassah to undertake the sole responsibility of the Girls’ Agricultural School at Nahalal has been received with enthusiasm at the Fourth Conference of the Women’s International Zionist Organization at Basic.

A cable received today at Canadian Hadassah headquarters from Lady Samuel reads: “Fourth Conference Womens International Zionist Organization Basle warmly welcomes Canadian Hadassah’s magnificent offer to undertake sole responsibility of Nahalal School under name of the Canadian Hadassah. Delegates were greatly inspired.”

One of the resolutions passed at the recent Canadian Hadassah Convention held in Winnipeg was to open a new wing of the Nahalal School in the name of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Freiman, president of the Canadian Zionist Organization and president of the Canadian Hadassah Organization.
