Jerusalem (Jan. 10)
A committee to negotiate with the workers and colonists for the purpose of establishing better relations between Jewish labor and capital was appointed by the Vaad Leumi, National Council of Palestine Jews.
This step was taken in connection with the recent disturbances at Petach Tikvah where the Jewish workers protested against the attitude of the colonists toward employing Jewish workers. The Vaad Leumi, in a statement issued, expressed criticism both of the workers and the colonists, the first for having used force in the dispute and the latter for their refusal to accept arbitration. The necessity for establishing Jewish labor colonies in Palestine was emphasized in the statement.
