Argentine Official Lauds Jewish Colonists in Ceremony at Ica Settlement

The opening of a new cooperative in the Baron de Hirsh settlement in Argentina, near Buenos Aires, was announced today by the ICA, the Jewish Colonization Association.

In an address delivered at the opening ceremonies, Senator Dr. Diego M. ArguellO, who represented the Governor of Buenos Aires, congratulated the ICA and the Jewish colonists for the example they have set for other agriculturists in Argentina. The Jewish colonists’ achievements, he added, “are the best arguments for those who have always demanded that our territories be opened to selected foreign immigration.” A representative of the ICA and of the municipality also spoke.
