(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Wishing to concentrate its efforts on the colonization project in Bureya, the Ozet. the society for settling Jews on the land, forwarded a proposal to the Agrojoint with regard to the colonization work in Eupatoria.

The agency of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee was asked by the Ozet to assume the entire Jewish settlement work in Eupatoria. Negotiations concerning the matter are being carried on.

The Soviet Labor Unemployment Insurance Department has agreed to allot to the Comzet 135 roubles for each unemployed worker, toward settling him on the land.
