Boston Hears Talk by Mrs. Lindheim

Sensational charges relative to land speculation in Palestine were made here yesterday by Mrs. Irma Lindheim, former national president of Hadassah, at a meeting of the women’s division of the Greater Boston Pioneer Palestine Campaign.

Mrs. Lindheim, here from Palestine on a speaking tour of the country in the interests of the campaign, disclosed that Zionist leaders are speculating on productive land and bidding higher prices so that the Jewish National Fund was kept out in the cold.

She said land speculation is common in Palestine and predicted that unless checked would work considerable harm to Zionism.
