(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A protest against the recent Palestine government ordinance restricting immigration to Palestine was adopted at the final day of the world conference of the Hechalutz which was in session here for several weeks.

The conference welcomed the decision of the Fifteenth Zionist Congress to arrange for the immigration to Palestine of 1,000 to 1,500 Chalutzim this year. The conference also adopted a number of resolutions aiming to strengthen the Chalutz movement in Eastern Europe and to provide more extensive facilities for the training of the pioneers. One of the resolutions calls for the establishment in Warsaw of a seminary for the training of Chalutzim teachers, another plans the sending of a number of Chalutzim from Eastern Europe to France, Holland, Austria and Czechoslovakia to obtain technical training. A decision was also taken to start the publication of a weekly, “Junger Jude,” in the German language.

The conference also adopted a resolution protesting against the persecution of Chalutzim and Zionists in Russia.
