(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Professor Horace M. Kallen, well known American Jewish writer, arrived here yesterday on his visit back from Palestine. Professor Kalien will visit the new Jewish colonies in Russia.

When interviewed by the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here, Professor Kallen stated that he was greatly impressed with the moral freedom of Palestine Jews. Palestine is the only country where the Jews feel themselves free, he said. He was particularly impressed by the contrast between Jewish life in Palestine and in Poland.

Palestine affords limited possibilities and it requires much money, but if the funds are available, a great deal can be achieved, he stated. He was very optimistic of the future of Palestine.
