See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An all-Palestine organge show was opened in Jaffa Friday. Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner, delivered the opening address, in which he stated that he had studied the citrus industry in many countries, but in no country has this industry such a splendid future as in Palestine.

In order to secure a good market for the Palestine oranges at high prices, cooperation between the Jews and the Arabs is necessary. The Jews deserve credit for securing the world market for this Palestine product, the High Commissioner stated.

A $50,000 drive for the Hebrew Home for the Aged of Portland, Maine, is being conducted.
