Download PDF for this date

Eighty percent of the $500,000 appropriated by the Palestine government for compensation to the victims of the riots will go to the Jews and twenty percent to Arabs, the Hebrew paper “Hazman,” published in Tel Aviv, learns. The Palestine Emergency Fund has appropriated a sum adequate for building a commercial and Jewish center in Safed to contain forty shops.
