Relations Between Jewish Labor and Employers Threaten Palestine Growth, Says Appeal

The present relations between Jewish labor and industry in Palestine threaten: the continued prosperity of the country and is hampering industrial development, the Jewish Industrialists Association charged today in a cable to the World Zionist Conference in London.

The cable urged that the conference empower the Jewish Agency to introduce compulsory arbitration of industrial disputes. Labor groupshave been opposed to such a proposal.

Meanwhile, spokesmen for demobilized Jewish soldiers expressed the hope today that the London parley would demand that the Palestine Government make available for settlement by veterans all waste and government land in the country.
