Download PDF for this date

Mayor Meier Dizengoff, who has been critically ill for the past two days, was reported steadily sinking this afternoon. Attending physicians held out little hope for his recovery. A third blood transfusion was performed this afternoon, but the mayor failed to rally.

Inquiries about his condition flooded Tel Aviv from all parts of the world. Mayor Dizengoff is seventy-four years old.
