(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The opening and closing sessions of the Fifteenth Zionist Congress, marking the 30th anniversary of the Zionist movement, will be filmed, according to arrangements concluded yesterday by the Congress bureau with a well-known film company.

The film will have particular significance in view of the extraordinary character of the present Congress, which takes place in the cradle of “political Zionism.” on the same day and at the same place where the first Congress under Dr. Herzl witnessed the establishment of the Zionist World Organization thirty years ago.
