A vocational school for the training of Jewish girls will be erected in Palestine at Ramath Gan, near Tel Aviv, by the end of the year, with funds raised in America, it was announced today at the eighth convention of the Pioneer Women’s Organization, meeting here. A $50,000 drive to secure the funds to construct the school was launched at the convention.

The 400 delegates present were urged to mobilize the 10,000 members of the organization throughout the country for increased participation in civilian defense activities, in an address delivered by Sara Feder, a member of the national secretariat of the group.
