A street of homes for residents of a new labor settlement in Israel will be erected with $100,000 raised by six New York locals of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, it was announced last night by the National Committee for Labor Israel, which accepted the money in behalf of the Histadrut. Union members contributed a day’s pay to the fund.
