(J. T. A. Mail Service)

Dr. Weizmann, speaking here last night at a big demonstration organized by the German Pro-Palestine Committee, (briefly reported by cable in the J. T. A. Bulletin of the 29th. inst.) declared that the foundations of the Jewish National Home were unshaken. The basis of the national home was the mandate. Even if it was not being carried into effect in every particular by the Mandatory Power, they must admit that the upbuilding of the home was a difficult matter. The Jewish home must be built in such a way that not a hair of the Arabs would be touched. They would be false to the basic idea of Zionism if they carried on their work at the expense of the Arab interests. The interests of the Jews and the Arabs must be in conformity. That was why the work was not progressing as rapidly as their impatience demanded. But the British would have to learn impatience from them, even as they would have to learn patience from the British. One thing stood firm. Great Britain honestly intended to carry out the mandate. Every Zionist should feel confident of this. The great British nation would keep its word.

Two St. Louis theatres, owned by the same management, last night eliminated motion pictures of the automobile manufacturer from news reels upon the complaint of four Jewish patrons. The news reels showed Mr. Ford and his son. Edsel, inspecting an airplane. The scenes were followed by a brief excerpt from Ford’s statement of apology, and were followed in turn by more pictures of the automobile manufacturers.
