Moshe Roznai, 20, who was kidnapped from his home in Givat Shmuel on Sunday night by a band of 30 armed men, returned home today unharmed. He was questioned for several hours by the police, but he had no information concerning his kidnappers, except that they were not members of the Irgun or Stern Group.

Two new Jewish settlements, “Haogen,” in the Sharon district, and “Sdeh Akiva,” on the Negev border, will be established during the night, it was announced here today. “Haogen” will be a Hashomer Hatzair settlement of 150 persons. It will be a combined agricultural and industrial colony. The Negev settlement will be comprised of 30 Palestinians and several youths from overseas.
