Download PDF for this date

Premier David Ben Gurion favors a proposal that the Israel Government extend a grant-in-aid of about $10,000,000 to the Jewish Agency executive in order to enable the latter to continue its program of full-scale absorption of immigrants in the Jewish state, it was learned here today following a four-hour conference between Mr. Ben Gurion and the American Poale Zion delegates to the World Zionist Congress.

The conference dealt primarily with problems of the Zionist movement in the United States. The Premier displayed great interest in the future of American Zionism and the role which the Zionist laborites will play in it.
