A new quarter of 100 houses for German Jewish refugee settlers in the Haifa Bay colony of the Jewish National Fund is to be named Kiriat Bialik in honor of the dead Hebrew poet laureate, it was announced today. The cornerstone of the new town is to be laid shortly. Some £40,000 will be invested in the project, half to be supplied by South African Jewry and half by the settlers.

Just before Bialik went to Vienna he delivered himself of his true feelings concerning the state of affairs in the Jewish national home, and particularly in Tel Aviv, of which city he was a resident.
