(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A party of Jewish agricultural laborers will proceed to Southern France the beginning of October, where they will obtain employment as season workers on the French farms.

The party is being organized by the Hias-Emigdirekt. The majority of the group comes from the Marmorosh Sziget district and although they are completely trained for agricultural work, became paupers because of the lack of land.
