Insulin not a cure

“The Medical Journal of Australia, in dealing with the treatment of diabetics with insulin, states that a considerable period will have to elapse before the full therapeutic significance of this patented preparation can be ascertained. ‘The Public has been told much that is not true [about] the remedy, and it is now convinced that diabetes can be cured by this means. This is not the first time this tragedy has been enacted.'”

Rebuilding Palestine

“Lecturing on ‘Women and Palestine’ at the King’s Hall, Madame Bella Pevsner made an appeal for funds for the settlement of Jewish pioneers in Palestine.

Madam Pevsner will also travel to New Zealand where she will continue to campaign for the Zionist organisation.”
