(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish labor party, Left Poale Zion, has 100 representatives in 33 Polish city governments, it was reported at a convention of Jewish aldermen belonging to that party, which opened here yesterday at City Hall.

Zerubabel, one of the leaders of the party, reviewing the progress of the past ten years recalled that in 1917, when the first communal elections were held in Poland, the party succeeded in electing only one representative to a city council.
