See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Dead Sea concession to Moses Novomejsky and Major Tulloch, for the formation of a company to exploit the mineral salts, will be signed within a fortnight, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns from good authority.

Although the majority of the directors of the contemplated company are to be Britishers and Palestinians, prominent representation will be accorded to Americans.

The American members of the board of directors will include Felix M. Warburg and Bernard Flexner, as vice-chairman and chairman respectively of the Palestine Economic Corporation; Israel Brodie and Edward Friedman, representing an American group which has subscribed toward the company’s capital.
