(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Ozete, the society for the settlement of Jews on the land, has formulated new plans for furthering the work.

An application to the Concil of People’s Commissars for permission to conduct a second lotteery was presented by the Ozet. The lottery would bring in a million roubles for the colonization work.

The formation of a separate body for the collection of funds to carry on the colonization work, leaving to the Ozet the cultural, medical and other practical undertakings, is being planned by the society. The Agrofund would raise the funds through small shares of five, ten and fifteen roubles.

Telegrams to all organizations abroad connected with the colonization work have been despatched by the Ozet, asking that funds be raised to assist the Jewish colonists who suffered because of climatic calamities.

A commission has been sent by the Ozet to the Crinea to investigate the charges made by colonists against the work of the Crimean brauch of the society.
