(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A resolution welcoming the suggestion that members of the Permanent Mandates Commission should visit mandated territories for the purpose of personal study of the problems connected with mandates, will be presented to the International Conference of League of Nations Unions, which opened here yesterday. This resolution was worked out by one of the commissions of the League of Nations Unions which held meetings prior to the opening of the conference.

The question of the Polish-Jewish Agreement, which was to have been discussed by the Conference, has been removed from the agenda. Prof. Handelsman of Poland, who had originally placed this subject on the agenda, declared that he withdrew it because the Polish-Jewish Agreement has lost its meaning as a result of the new situation, created in Poland since Pilsudski took over the government.

Prof. Baron is at the conference as the representative from the Jewish League of Nations Union in Austria.

The application of the Palestine League of Nations Union for admission to membership to the International Council has been transferred by the Conference for consideration to a special juridical commission. This is in conformity with the established precedent regarding the admission of unions in mandated territories. The juridical commission will report on the Palestine application during the course of the Conference.
