Says Z. O. is Definitely Committed to Reconstitution of the Jewish Agency

(J. T. A. Mail Service)

The Zionist Organization is now definitely committed to the reconstitution of the Jewish Agency and to the inclusion within its framework of such responsible bodies of non-Zionists as are willing to co-operate in the establishment of the Jewish National Home, the “Bulletin of International News,” published here by the Association for International Understanding, writes in its current issue, commenting on the results of the recent Berlin meeting of the General Council of the Zionist Organization.

“The General Council,” it says, “adopted resolutions in which, while generally endorsing the report of the Commission, it made two important reservations. In the first place it declared that the Zionist Organization could entertain no proposals impairing the integrity of the Jewish National Fund, and secondly it laid it down that the settler must have freedom of choice between the Kvuzoth and any other form of settlement, provided that the form selected was one which was capable of becoming self-supporting. As regards the enlargement of the Jewish Agency, the General Council requested the Executive to continue the negotiations with the non-Zionists and to press them forward to an early conclusion.”

HELEN JACOBS REACHES FINALS IN TENNIS NATIONALS

Helen Jacobs, California Jewish girl who has attained national prominence in the tennis world, reached the finals in the Women’s National Singles tournament which was concluded Monday at Forest Hills, Long Island.

Though she was not expected to defeat Helen Wills, five times national champion. Miss Jacobs’s work during the early days of the tournament, her triumph over Mrs. Molla Mallory in hard fought sets on Saturday, brought more interest to the finals in which Miss Wills, who has never been defeated since attaining her title except by Mile. Susan Lenglen, was viewed even before the play as an easy victor.

Although Miss Jacobs is equipped with a flashing forehand, her nervousness and lack of control forced her into many errors. Only twenty, she is expected to develop into an outstanding player, already ranking second in women’s national tennis.

Judge Julian W. Mack and Walter Li##mann of the New York “World” are member of the American Committee to welcome Count Michael Karolyi, former Premier of Hungary, who is scheduled to arrive in New York Saturday on the Spanish liner Cr## bol Colon.
