Bright Future for Huleh Area Predicted by J.N.F. Leader

Within a few years Lake Huleh will disappear from the map and will be replaced by large stretches of fertile land through which will run wide irrigation channels carrying water for agriculture and for fish breeding ponds, Dr. Abraham Granot, world head of the Jewish National Fund, declared here addressing the 27th annual conference of the British J.N.F.

Mr. Granot added that the agricultural area thus made available will provide Israel with some 3,000,000 pounds ($8,400,000) worth of additional food annually. It was reported at the session that the British J.N.F. raised 700,000 pounds last year.
