Download PDF for this date

The Arab press here is voicing its dissatisfaction because the Palestine Potash, Ltd., the company that owns the concession for the exploitation of the minerals in the Dead Sea is employing 120 Jewish workers and only 80 Arab workers. The papers insist that the number of Arab workers employed be equivalent to the number of Jewish workers. The head of the Palestine Potash, Ltd., is the Jewish engineer, Moses Novomojesky.
