Denial Made That Baron Drothschild Refused Invitation of Zionists

A denial of the report that Baron Edmond DeRothschild refused to accept the Zionist invitat

ion to visit Palestine has been made to the J.T.A. This report was spread by the London Daily Express, an anti-Zionist newspaper. The truth of the matter is that the physicians who were in attendance upon the Baron strongly advised against the exertion that a trip to Palestine would entail.
