Download PDF for this date

A plan to settle fifty former Jewish legionnaires in the colony, Kastinia, which was attacked during the recent outbreak, is being considered by the Zionist Executive. The legionnaires will be settled together with the returning colonists. Each legionnaire would receive 100 dunams.

Fifteen former legionnaires are being settled in the colony, Rabia, by Jews of Riga.
