Ica Assigns Funds to Palestine Agricultural School and Hebrew University

The ICA, the Jewish Colonization Association, has allotted $16,000 to the agricultural school at Mikveh Israel in Palestine, it was announced here today. The funds will be used for improvement of the land cultivated by the institution. It is hoped that the additional income thus derived from the land will be sufficient, together with other donations, to meet the school’s deficit. The main improvement to which the ICA donation will be devoted will be irrigation of the soil.

At the same time, it was announced that the ICA has allocated a substantial sum to the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, in order to allow expansion of the University’s Agronomic faculty.
