Download PDF for this date

The Palestine Pavilion in the French Colonial Exhibition opened yesterday by the President of the French Republic, M. Doumergue, has not yet been completed, but it is expected to be finished in a day or two. It will be officially opened next week by M. Justin Godart, a former Cabinet Minister, who is President of the France-Palestine Committee. A big gathering of French and Jewish notables is expected to attend the opening ceremony.

Mr. Mayer Dizengoff, the Mayor of Tel Aviv, has been in Paris for some time personally supervising the progress of the work on the Palestine Favilion, The work is already sufficiently far advanced for visitors to be struck by the outstanding design of the famous Tomb of Rachel, in which form the Palestine Pavilion is being built
