Download PDF for this date

Plans for the creation of a worldwide Jewish travel bureau were revealed by Gustave Eisner, New York travel agent, on his return from a trip through several European countries, Palestine, Egypt and Syria. Mr. Eisner declared he had discussed the project with travel agencies abroad, officials of steamship lines and Jewish leaders interested in immigration problems.

He also revealed that the Polish government will allow special privileges to American Jewish tourists visiting Poland and will allow them a one-third reduction in fares on Polish railways.
