Palestine Teachers Demand Reinstatement of Dismissed Educators

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A conference of Palestine Hebrew teachers opened here yesterday in the presence of fifty delegates.

In a resolution adopted the hope was expressed that the dismissal notices given by the education department of the Zionist Executive to a number of teachers will be cancelled and that the teachers will be permitted to remain at their posts.

Miss Henrietta Szold. member of the Executive, upon her return from Berlin. came into conflict with the representatives of the Labor Federation over the educational budget demanded by it.

Miss Szold stated to the representatives of the labor cultural commission that there is no item in the budget providing for the commission’s work, the labor representatives claiming that an item of £4,800 was earmarked for the purpose.
