U.S. General Lauds Formation of Jewish Brigade; Americans Study Palestine’s Industry

Brigadier General Edward Morris of the United States Army, who is touring Palestine, today told reporters that he is certain that the Jewish Brigade will distinguish itself in action.

“Judging from the record of Jewish soldiers in the United States Army, we have every reason to believe that the record of the Jewish Brigade will be of the highest order,” he declared.

An American economic delegation which is now visiting Palestine today spent several hours in Tel Aviv visiting industrial plants and discussing Palestine’s industrial possibilities with M. Shenkar, president of the Jewish Industrial Association.

The delegation, which was accompanied by an American vice-Consul, praised Jewish industrial achievements. “We did not expect to find in this small out-of-the-way country such highly developed efficient industry,” the head of the delegation told Mr. Shenkar.
