So. African Government Urged to Settle Demobilized Soldiers After Palestine Model

The Johannesburg Rotary Club has submitted a plan to the government providing for the settlement of demobilized South African soldiers along the lines of the Palestine Jewish collectives, it was learned here today. A special committee of the club assigned to study the subject this week interviewed Yehuda Kauzman, noted Palestine writer, who is here on a visit, to secure detailed information concerning the Jewish settlements.

Pointing out the advantages of such settlements, the Rotary club memorandum to the government cites the colony of Nahalal as an example of how settlers can overcome disease and other hardships and build a “veritable paradise.” It also stresses that the colony is rapidly repaying the funds advanced for colonization.
