(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The “Zionist Organization month,” set aside by the World Zionist Executive for the purpose of increasing the membership of the World Zionist Organization, was inaugurated here last night at a large mass meeting held at the People’s Palace.

Nahum Sokolow, chairman of the Zionist Executive, delivered the principal address, in which he appealed to his listeners to strengthen the Zionist Organization in Great Britain. “Should you fail to do this, a dissonance would be created from the fact that in Great Britain, the country holding the mandate for Palestine, Zionist affiliation is inconsiderable.”

Commenting upon his journey to the United States, Mr. Sokolow stated that his trip was successful, not merely from a financial point of view, but also from the spiritual viewpoint. American Jews are more and more becoming spiritual co-partners in the upbuilding of Palestine, he stated.
