Poale Zion Party Holds Convention in Chicago

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The convention of the Jewish socialist labor party, Poale Zion, was opened at Temple Judea here Wednesday night in the presence of 75 delegates.

Berl Locker, general secretary of the Poale Zion party, who came to the United States from Berlin to attend the convention, urged the Poale Zion to organize their forces “to repell the vicious attacks circulated against our heroic pioneers and the labor movement in Palestine.” He asserted that these attacks found expression in the decisions of the last Zionist Congress at Basle.
