Zionist Weekly of Vienna Attacks New Plan as Bluff (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A vigorous campaign to popularize the plan of the Comzet for starting Jewish colonization work in Bureya, Siberia, was undertaken by the Jewish section of the Communist party, despatches received here from Moscow declare. A series of mass meetings will be arranged in the most important centers of Jewish population in Russia to advocate the plan.

The “Emes,” Yiddish Communist daily, states that many Jews resident in Moscow have signified their intention to migrate to Siberia to take up work there.
