(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Judge Harry M. Fisher. Zionist leader of Chicago, was feted here last night at a banquet given by a group of sixty Russian Zionists.

It was through Judge Fisher’s efforts during his visit to Russia in 1921 as a representative of the Joint Distribution Committee that these sixty Russian Zionists were released from the Moscow prison. Speakers at the banquet emphasized that the Soviet prisons are still full of Zionists.
