The Jewish Agency’s budget for the Hebrew year 5709 will be at least $124,000,000 and will probably reach $142,000,000, it was announced here today. The Agency expects to establish 7,000 agricultural units–approximately 70 new settlements–in the course of the year.

Twenty-one hundred immigrants arrived at Haifa today. The immigrants, who came from France aboard the Israeli vessel Atzmaut, were immediately disembarked.
