The colonization possibilities of Bira-Bidjan, the Far Eastern region where the Ozet, society for Jewish land settlement, is sponsoring Jewish settlement, were approved by the American commission headed by Professor Harris. The commission has concluded its investigation and will return next week to Moscow. They will sail for the United States at the beginning of October.

The commission found the land suitable for cultivation of grain for bread as well as for industry.
