Ukrainian Labor Unions to Study Jewish Colonies

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The praesidium of the Ukrainian labor unions has decided to send a delegation to the new Jewish colonies in the Ukraine for the purpose of preparing a report to acquaint the Ukrainian workers with the situation there.

At a meeting of the Ozet, the society, for settling Jews on the land, held here yesterday, the chairman of the National Minorities Committee, Butsenke, stated that he has no fear that the Jewish colonization work will increase anti-Semitic propaganda. It was not true, he declared, that the workers are complaining of the Jews settling in Crimea while the Ukrainians settle in Siberia.
