(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, was extensively interrogated concerning his plans for the organization of the Jewish Agency at the meeting of the political committee.

Replying to the questions, Dr. Weizmann stated that the American branch of the Jewish Agency will include not only the Marshall group but other groups as well. As to the financial aid expected by Zionists from the Jewish Agency, Dr. Weizmann stated that so far only the Marshall group has been approached. What is known so far of the plan which might be adopted by the Agency is Dr. Frankel’s bank project, he stated. Should the extension of the Agency prove in a reasonable time to have no effect on the increase of the financial means necessary for Palestine, the Agency plan will be useless, he added.
