See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The United Hebrew Trades yesterday decided against sending a delegation at present to Palestine to consider means of cooperating with the organized labor of Palestine.

In the resolutions adopted, the U.H.T. expressed its willingness to aid Palestine cooperative bodies and its sympathy with the labor movement there, but declares that the time is not opportune for the sending of a delegation now.

This action of the United Hebrew Trades is in response to a recent invitation from the organized Jewish workmen of Palestine requesting that a delegation of American Jewish unionists he sent to Palestine in order to effect a closer bod between the two bodies.
