Download PDF for this date

Six demonstrators were arrested and a number injured today when 600 residents of a labor settlement near Tel Aviv demonstrated before Jewish Agency offices here demanding employment and housing.

A deputation attempted to see Dr. George Josephthal, head of the Jewish Agency settlement department, but he was in Jerusalem. The irritated crowd then attempted to force the occupation of the Agency offices, but was dispersed by police after a short clash.
