(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The body of Georg Brandes will be cremated on Friday following ceremonies which will take place in the Crematorium chapel.

Messages of condolence to the Brandes family continue to come in from all parts of the world. King Christian of Denmark instructed his court minister to bring a wreath to the chapel in the name of the King. Messages were also received from German Minister of Foreign Affairs Stressemann and Minister of Education Becker.

The German Minister here, Herr Hassel, called on Miss Brandes and expressed condolence on behalf of the government of the German Republic.
