See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Sunday at 6 A. M., the new Haifa Harbor received the S. S. Vulcania inside the new breakwaters. It is the biggest ship which has ever entered the breakwaters. First were landed 266 excursionists and by 1 P. M. 1,058 American and European passengers were dispatched, baggage cleared and forwarded by four special trains to Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv. Passengers all enthusiastically appreciated the perfect organization and cooperation between local government authorities and the ship management..

This refers to the group of American tourists which went out through the Rosen Palestine-Oriental Tours, 122 Fifth Ave. They are now making arrangements to send the Vulcania again on a Shevuoth trip on May 6th.
