Lack of funds may prevent the Jews of Austria from sending an Austrian delegation to the World Maccabiah in Israel, it was learned today. The Hakoah, Vienna Jewish sports organization, which had planned to send a squad of 27 to the Maccabiah, disclosed that it will send only ten men. They will leave by ship this week.
