An urgent request that the Zionist Executive take cognizance of the situation of a number of Polish Jews who went to Palestine with the fourth immigration wave and are now suffering because of the crisis in Tel Aviv, was presented by the Zionist Organization of Poland.

The request was transmitted in cables to the Zionist Executive in London and the Zionist Executive in Jerusalem, asking for immediate measures of relief. The Zionist Executive in London replied, it was learned today, that measures to relieve the situation were considered at a series of conferences and that the amount of £1,000 allotted some time ago for industrial assistance has been made available. The amount of £5,000 to be used for loans to small industrial enterprises was also decided upon.

The Zionist Organization of Poland has also directed a request to the Zionist Executive in London and the Zionist Organization of Roumania to render assistance to those Polish Jews who are re-emigrating to Poland from Palestine.
