Thirty farmers and six trade union leaders left Tanganyika tonight for a three-week study tour of Israel sponsored by the Israel Government which sent a special plane to bring them to Israel.

Paul Romani, Tanganyika’s Minister for Agriculture, an official guest of the Israel Government on a visit last June, addressed the group before the take-off. He described many aspects of farm settlement projects in Israel which with suitable modifications might be applied in Tanganyika.

Referring to the farmers as “Tanganyika’s farming ambassadors,” he urged them to study as much as they could for maximum application of their findings to Tanganyikan agriculture needs. The six trade union leaders will study various phases of the trade union movement during their stay.
