–An optimistic report of conditions in the Jewish colonies in the Ukraine and Crimea was brought back by Y. Lubarsky, head agronomist of the Agrojoint, who returned from a tour of the colonies.

Conditions are better in Crimea, good in the Krivoy Rog region and fari in Cherson, he stated in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent. The winter seeding has been completed and the outlook for the crop is good.

The survey of the 109,000 hectares recently granted for Jewish colonization in Crimea is proceeding with the participation of Agrojoint agronomists. They expect that a large proportion of the land is fertile.
