Agency to Give Rival Unit Visas

The Agudath Israel which recently proclaimed the establishment of a separate Jewish Agency, will receive immigration certificates for Palestine from the present Jewish Agency in which Zionists and non-Zionists are equally represented, it was announced here today by A. H. Goodman, leader of the Agudath.

The number of certificates which the Agudath Israel, extreme orthodox Jewish organization, will receive from the Agency which it seeks to rival, will be determined by the proportion of Agudath members in the lands of the Di###ora who are graduated from the so-called Hachsharah, training farms for agricultural work in Palestine.

A. H. Goodman, political secretary of the world organization of the Agudath Israel, today addressed the Agudath Council here on the plans of the Agudath in Palestine and on the organization’s plans to carry on political negotiations with the Colonial Office.
