The Zionist Organization of America, following a special meeting today of its Administrative Committee, dispatched a telegram of sympathy to Mrs. Harding. At this meeting it was also decided to enter the name of President Harding in the Golden Book of the Jewish National Fund, as a tribute to his services to the Jewish People in giving official approval to the establishment in Palestine of a Jewish National Home. The telegram, signed by Louis Robison, Acting Chairman, is as follows:-

“The Zionist Organization of America mourns the great irreparable loss which you and the nation have sustained in the death of your noble husband, our great president. Our grief is too profound to give adequate utterance to our feelings. The Jewish people will forever remember with gratitude his great sympathy and profound understanding of our cause to which he was always ready to give his aid and assistance”

The Zionist Organization of America also sent the following telegram to President Calvin Coolidge:

“In this hour of grief which has befallen our nation we are not unmindful of the heavy burden which has fallen on your shoulders. May god give you the strength to guide our nation in this grave hour”.
