(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An attack on Nahum Sokolow, chairman of the Executive of the World Zionist Organization, criticizing him for his interviews with Premier Mussolini and Pope Pius XI. was made by the “Juedische Arbelker.” organ of the Poale Zion party published here.

Declaring that currying the favor of Mussolini and the Pope is valueless the paper says that it would be better for him to go to New York, Warsaw and Jerusalem to win the Jewish masses for Zionism.
