(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Support for the separatist policy of the Orthodox Agudath Israel was sought among the ultra-Orthodox groups in Hungary and Czechoslovakia by Dr. Pinchas Cohn, president of the organization.

Dr. Cohn, who visited Budapest and Pressburg, conferred with the representatives of Hungarian and Czechoslovakian Kolelim, the organizations collecting funds for the support of the institutions of the old Yishub in Palestine. It was stated that the purpose of his negotiations was to continue the persistence of the ultra-Orthodox in Palestine in opposition to the Palestine Communities Ordinance.

Dr. Cohn will shortly leave on another trip to Palestine.
