Download PDF for this date

About 100 of the teachers in the Jewish Agency schools who went on strike to-day, as a protest against the non-payment of their salaries for June and July, invaded the offices of the Jewish Agency and held up the work of the staff, which was broken off for about an hour. Finally they were persuaded to leave, on receiving a promise that their demands would be given urgent consideration.
