The Jewish Agency will require $30,000,000 to absorb 100,000 displaced Jews from Europe and all the demobilized Jewish soldiers who will return to Palestine, it was reported at a press conference here today by Bernard Joseph, the Agency’s legal advisor. He said that twenty-five percent of the 100,000 Jewish refugees will be children for whom place will be made on the collective farms and in various institutions.
