The economic crisis in Palestine has been completely overcome, Nahum Sokolow, chairman of the Zionist Executive, declared at a press conference here following the issuance of the pro-Palestine statement by the Austrian government.

The efforts to ameliorate the crisis have been carried on by the Zionists without any outside help, he stated.

The improvement in the situation, he added, will better the chances of the internal and external loan planned by the Zionist Organization.

In his statement Mr. Sokolow praised the medical work of the Hadassah in Palestine, carried on by the American women’s Zionist organization. “This work has been an invaluable factor for bringing about peaceful relations between Arabs and Jews. Not long ago King Feisul asked me to see to it that a ‘miracle working unit’ of the Hadassah be sent to Iraq which we have promised to do,” Mr. Sokolow stated.
