Roumania-palestine Voyage of S.s. Polonia is Cancelled

Download PDF for this date

The S.S. Polonia of the Gdynia-America line will not make its scheduled sailing from Constanza, Roumania, to Haifa, Palestine, it was learned today because passenger reservations for the trip, as a result of the Palestine immigration restrictions, totalled only eighty. The liner, formerly in the New York-Gdynia trans-Atlantic run has accommodations for over a thousand.

The immigration restrictions put into effect by the Palestine administration not only have sharply reduced the number of immigrants permitted to enter Palestine but have also limited the number of imgrants each vessel may carry on each trip.

The next sailing of the Polonia to Palestine will be on Dec. 27 providing there is a minimum of 200 passengers.
