(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Opposition to the conference on Jewish Rights which is to meet in Zurich in August under the auspices of the American Jewish Congress and the Committee of Jewish Delegations was voiced by the late Lord Swaythling, Morris Meyer, editor of the London Yiddish daily “Die Zeit”, disclosed yesterday.

At a meeting of the Joint Foreign Committee of the Board of Jewish Deputies and the Anglo-Jewish Association, Lord Swaythling demanded that the Committee issue a public protest against the convocation of the conference. Other members of the Committee were opposed to this view which was disregarded when word was received in London of the statement issued by Louis Marshall opposing the conference.
