Nahum Sokolow, noted Jewish writer and Chairman of the Executive of the World Zionist Organization, when asked today for his opinion on Hans Herzl’s conversion to Catholicism, refused to issue any statement on the matter, declaring that it was the act of a deranged mind and without any significance. Hans was an irresponsible person and any folly could be expected of him.
