(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Palestine Electric Corporation, which is now erecting its power houses on the banks of the Jordan, is to include in its electricfication work also the cities of Transjordania.

Reports in the Transjordanian press state that Mr. Pinchas Rutenberg, who has organized the electric company, is now seeking to obtain a concession for carrying out electrification work in Amman, the capital of Transjordania, in Kerak and in Salt. These points were not included in the original concession.
