Fifty graduates and staff members of the Boys’ Agricultural School at Mikve Israel today established a small holders’ settlement near Nathania to be called Kfar Netter, in memory of Charles Netter, prominent French Jew and founder of Mikve Israel.

Troops yesterday searched the quarters of the Brith Trumpeldor, Zionist-Revisionist youth organization, near Beer Jacob, arresting 17 members of the organization and also the watchman and three residents of Beer Jacob.
