A group of 538 Jewish immigrants from Turkey, who had been dumped in Cyprus by the Turkish steamer "Galata Paray" instead of being transported to Israel, were embarked on the "Theodor Herzl" today which will bring them here, a dispatch from the island reported.

Meanwhile, 1,312 Jewish immigrants arrived in Haifa yesterday and today. One thousand of the new arrivals came aboard the Negba from Marseilles while the reminder were brought to Israel by the Elath from Bari.
