27th Annual Convention of Zionist Organization to Discuss Removal of Headquarters to Jerusalem

With seven hundred delegates from all over the United States in attendance, the 27th annual convention of the Zionist Organization of America-the largest gathering ever held in the history of the movement-opens here Sunday. June 29th, at the William Penn Hotel, with Louis Lipsky, National Chairman of the organization presiding. The convention closes the following Tuesday night.

Interest in the convention centers in the proposal to remove the world Zionist headquarters from London to Jerusalem. In view of the opposition which many European Zionists are making to this proposal and to the fact that it is expected to be the principal question discussed at the annual meeting of the Greater Actions Committee of the World Zionist Organization which convenes in London in July following the convention, the proposal will occupy the center of discussion at the convention here.
