3 U.S. Senators to Make Survey in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Three United States senators arrived here yesterday on the Rex to make an unofficial survey of Jewish accomplishments in the Holy Land. They are Royal S. Copeland of New York, Warren E. Austin of Vermont and Daniel O. Hastings of Delaware.

Senator Copeland will pay particular attention to health conditions in Palestine, but also intends to study immigration and relief problems with a view to using the information when legislation on immigration comes up in Congress.

Senator Copeland was invited to make a health survey of Palestine eighteen years ago by Nathan Straus, late New York Jewish philanthropist and Zionist leader, but says he never had time until now.
