Download PDF for this date

Responding to a plea by former Premier David Ben Gurion this week-end at a Nahalal rally, 100 Israeli youths announced that they would leave their homes in established settlements and take up pioneering duties in the border regions. The announcement was made after Mr. Ben Gurion made his appeal, the second in several days, for the youth of Israel to unite to carry forth the pioneering traditions of the country.
