Download PDF for this date

Preparing for the arrival of Sir John Simpson, who is coming here to investigate immigration and land settlement problems for the British government, the Zionist Executive has appointed a commission dealing with lands, agriculture and urban colonization, headed by Dr. Arthur Ruppin, which, together with a commission elected by the Vaad Leumi for similar and other purposes, will cooperate with Sir John.

Dr. Ruppin is a well-known agricultural expert in Palestine. During the riots he was a member of the acting Zionist Executive in Palestine.
