The central committee of the Histadruth, the Palestine Federation of Labor, disclosed today that it had no objections to the adzittance of Communists into the federation.

Its stand was made known in a letter to the central committee of the Palestine Communist Party declaring that it welcomed all Communists who have changed their attitude regarding basic divergencies.

Replying, the Communist central committee announced that its members will fight shoulder to shoulder with the Histadruth for the abolition of the White Paper and for the establishment of a Jewish national home.
