Warsaw (Nov. 1)
Praise of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency for its news service during the emergency period of the Palestine events was voiced in the Warsaw Yiddish daily “Hajnt.”
“During the Palestine events the Jewish Telegraphic Agency not only justified its existence one hundred percent but its necessity. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency was the first to deliver the news of the Palestine events not only for the Jewish press but also for the general newspapers of Europe and America, which led to a sympathetic attitude being adopted toward our cause. This to a great extent was due to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency which has proved in this respect of utmost importance,” the “Hajnt” declared.
