Rome (Mar. 22)
Sabatino Lopez, the renowned Italian dramatist, has cancelled his widely-advertised lecture on behalf of an Catholic organization, sponsored by Cardinal Firrari, at the Opera House. His action is the result of a discovery on his part that the organization devotes its funds towards anti-Zionist propaganda in Palestine. Lopez, in declining to deliver the lecture, stated that as a Jew and a Zionist he could not do otherwise. The cancellation has caused much comment in the Italian press and artistic circles.
