Hebrew Teachers’ Strike in Palestine Goes on

The strike of the Hebrew teachers in Palestine has entered on its fourth day, and at present there is no prospect of its being ended to-day. The teachers, meeting in various towns in order to consider the situation, had not arrived at any devision by this morning to obey the resolution adopted by the Vaad Leumi calling on them to return to the schools. In Jerusalem, the parents of the school children are forming a committee for the purpose of trying to get the strike settled. The residents of Haifa and Rehoboth have protested against the strike. The Jerusalem teachers have approved the stand of the Teachers’ Union, in calling the strike, and demand a drastic reduction in the wage scale of all employees of the Jewish Agency. The Haifa teachers regret the step taken by the Union, but have gone out on strike all the same.
