(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Oscar Wassermann, well known German financier and one of the Commissioners of the Jewish Agency, concluded his survey of Palestine conditions today after spending several weeks in the country.

Speaking to press representatives, Herr Wassermann stated that he found the Jewish colonies established on a sound economic basis. The industries of the country, particularly in and around Tel Aviv, are developing along normal lines. The present economic crisis should not discourage anyone, he stated.
