Ten thousand volunteers, recruited from among the membership of eighty-four Zionist groups and youth organizations, and including many pupils of the upper classes in 242 Hebrew schools in the metropolitan area, will carry on the sale of flowers for the benefit of Palestine land redemption Saturday evening and all day Sunday.

The occasion, arranged by the Jewish National Fund of America, in cooperation with the Zionist Organization, Hadassah, Order Sons of Zion, Poale Zion-Zere Zion and Mizrachi groups in more than 400 communities throughout the nation, will mark the observance of the twenty-second annual Palestine Flower Day.
