(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Agricultural Museum in Jerusalem which was to have been closed down as a measure of economy, pending its transfer to some other institution is remaining open under an arrangement with the Palestine Zionist Executive.

The Zionist Information Bureau has been entrusted temporarity with the care of the Exhibition. A number of women volunteers have undertaken to attend at the Museum daily to assist tourists and other visitors. This arrangement will hold good until the summer when the question of the future of the Museum will again come up for consideration.
