Dr. Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organization, due to sail for New York November 24, hinted in an interview with the JTA that he would reply in America to criticismskof Israel Zangwill with regard to the Zionist Movement.

Although the Zionist leader did not single out Mr. Zangwill by name, he said he would reply to recent criticism and deal with the present situation.

His primary object in making this trip to America was the enlargement of the Jewish Agency, Dr. Weizmann said. He added that he would confer for that purpose with leaders of American Jewry and with the heads of the various organizations. He will also attend the Keren Hayesod conference which has been called for December where he will outline the plan for the formation of the Agency.
