Science and Technology in Palestine


IN a lucid article, “Water-Power of Jordan”, which appeared in the Times of May 18 the twofold scheme of the Jewish engineer, Mr. Rutenberg, was explained. Mr. Rutenberg proposes, first, to establish a barrage at the southern end of the Sea of Galilee to be used as the main power-house for the general purpose of electrification. Secondly, the malaria-breeding marshes of Lake Huleh are to be drained and a power-house constructed which will utilise the fall of the Jordan between Lake Huleh and the Sea of Galilee for power generation.
