Tel Aviv, the first all Jewish city in Palestine, will open the celebration of its twentieth anniversary on March 22 with a Purim carnival, states an announcement by the Zionist Organization of America in New York which is sending a delegation to the celebration. At the opening celebration “Miss Palestine” is to be chosen, to go to Galveston to take part in the international beauty contest.

As part of the celebration, which will last a month, the Palestine and Near East Exhibition and Fair has been arranged. A Jewish world congress for propagation of interest in Palestine products will also be held. It is expected that Lord Melchett, who will be in Palestine at that time, will open the congress.

There will also be a conference of Palestine industrialists, which will consider problems of export trade, the question of credit to merchants ordering goods from Palestine, problems of packing, customs conditions in the various countries and market requirements, the announcement stated. Representatives from Europe, South Africa, Canada and the United States will attend the conference.

In connection with the fair there will be an automobile show, an art exhibition, a music festival, an oriental handicrafts bazaar, and other exhibits relating to industry, agriculture, building, public health, colonization machinery and radio.
