One hundred and fifty seven Jewish refugees whose trip to Palestine was interrupted when the Italian steamship Rodi was captured by a British warship and taken to Malta were scheduled to arrive today in Palestine by way of Egypt. On June 20, following the capture of the ship, the Jewish Agency asked the Palestine Government to provide transportation for these refugees.
