Israel Will Have 1,000,000 New Inhabitants Within Next Ten Years. Locker Predicts

The belief that “in the next ten years there will be a minimum of 1,000,000 new inhabitants in Israel — not one of whom is now there,” was expressed here today by Berl Lo###er, chairman of the Jerusalem executive of the Jewish Agency, addressing a press conference prior to his return to Israel.

Reporting on his mission here — “trying to straighten out the differences which have arisen within the United Palestine Appeal” — Mr. Locker said he was “confident that the agreement now reached forms a good basis for the wholehearted cooperation of all who are sincerely concerned with the well-being and progress of Israel.”
