An additional 150 refugees from the steamer Patria, interned since the vessel exploded in Haifa harbor last November, were released today from the internment camp at Athlit. About one hundred of them immediately enlisted in the Palestine forces. Of the first group of one hundred released last week some eighty joined the army.
