The National Committee for Labor Palestine today sent at a correction to its statement issued earlier this week announcing that it intends to raise an emergency fund of $1,000,000 for the Haganah and the Histadruth in Palestine. The text of the correction reads:
“In our release of January 4th, it was erroneously stated that the aim of the Emergency Conference of the National Committee for Labor Palestine at the Hotel Astor on January 18th will be to raise $1,000,000 for the Haganah and Histadruth. This is not correct. “The purpose of the Conference is solely to mobilize aid for the Histadruth for its regular and emergency needs.
