Download PDF for this date

A group of 210 Palestinians, including delegates to the recently ended 21st biennial World Zionist Congress at Geneva, sailed from Marseille for Palestine today on the steamer Andre le Bon.

Another 200 at Marseille and 70 at Paris are expecting to sail on the next steamer. After a brief interruption in scheduled sailings, navigation on the Mediterranean has been resumed.
