Download PDF for this date

A delegation of Syrian students, accompanied by their teachers, today visited the Jewish settlement of Dan to observe the agricultural techniques of the Jewish colonists.

In an informal addreas, one of the Arab teachers said that the Syrians had heard of the accomplishments in the Jewish colonies and felt that there was much the Arabs could learn from them. Arabs and Jews, he stated, can live together peacefully and cooperate in their country’s development as do peoples of different races in Switzerland and America.
