View Leon Blum’s Election As Personal Victory

Download PDF for this date

The re-election of Leon Blum, Socialist leader, to parliament, is attributed in the French press not so much to the propaganda of his party as to an appreciation of his personal qualities. Many senators and deputies participated in the campaign in his constituency.

His election was welcomed with satisfaction in Jewish circles here in view of Deputy Blum’s active participation in Jewish work and the anticipation that he will represent French Jewry on the council of the extended Jewish Agency.
