Three British Jews Arrive in Israel After 61-day Journey in Small Motor Boat

Three London Jews, David and Maurice Riback and Arthur Brosa, all under 30 years, reached Tel Aviv port yesterday in a crippled motor boat after 61 days of a most eventful voyage from Southampton. They were enthusiastically greeted by stevedores and ships at anchor.

The ship Theodor Herzl brought 600 immigrants from Tripoli this weekend. The vessel Ave Maria docked with 400 from Marsheilles and a small craft brought 40 from Turkey.
