(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A move to aid the Jewish transmigrants in the Cherson district who are suffering hardships due to crop failure, has been undertaken by the Comzet, the governmental department for settling Jews on the land.

Groups of sixty workers are being placed in the Tchernoless forest, and three to four hundred will soon be placed in factories, some in the Poltava sugar factory. The Comzet is endeavoring to prevent the transmigrants from selling the houses given them on credit. While they are engaged in the temporary work in the forests and factories, their land will be sown.
