(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

That Jews acquire the virtue of patience in the same degree as exercised by the English in dealing with the resettlement of Palestine was the advice given by Dr. Chaim Weizmana, president of the World Zionist Organization, in an address delivered last night at a huge reception given in his honor at the Philharmonic Hall.

“We must learn from the English the virtue of patience and continue to live peacefully with the Palestine Arabs, as well as with the neighboring countries. Only the pressure of work will extend small Palestine into Transjordania and Syria,” Dr. Weizmann declared.
