trants have deliberately circumvented legal stipulations which determine whether a man shall be admitted to Palestine under the regulations set forth in the capitalist classification.

These men, it was reported, have produced false evidence to the effect that they possessed a minimum of £1,000 sterling. In this way they obtained admission to the Holy Land as capitalists, speakers declared, whereas if their true economic status had been known they would have been refused visas on the ground that they belonged in the laboring group, which labors under the handicap of a stricter and more eagerly filled allotment.

It was decided at today’s conference that in the future men claiming the right to be admitted as capitalists will be more carefully scrutinized.
