(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The dates for the Ku Klux Klan Klonvocation at the Sesqui-Centennial Exposition have been announced as September 9, 10 and 11.

The directors of the Exposition have not yet been informed just how many Klansmen are to attend, but estimates run from a few thousand, to come from the section in or near Philadelphia, to 500,000, gathering from all over the Union.

The great auditorium of the Exposition has been rented for Thursday, September 9th, and Friday, the 10th. On these days the Klansmen are expected to hold their convention.

On Saturday, the Klan will hold a parade, beginning at probably one of the many historic points in the centre of the city, and passing down the principal thoroughfare, Broad Street, to and through the exposition grounds, winding up with ceremonies in the stadium.

Palestine Pilgrims, a newly oragnized body comprised of young men and women who have visited Palestine, will hold their first gathering at the Central Jewish Institute on Thursday evening, May 20th. Judge Julian Mack and Judge Rosenblatt are scheduled to speak.

Rabbi Meyer Don Plocki of Warsaw, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Rabbis of Poland, arrived in New York on Friday on the Mauretania.
