A group of 14 American young men and women trained as Chalutzim in the United States arrived here today. They will complete their training at an agricultural colony in Israel prior to establishing their own collective settlement.

Dr. Peretz Bernstein, leader of the General Zionists in Israel, is leaving for the United States to participate in the convention of the Zionist Organization of America, which is scheduled to open in Chicago at the end of this month.
