Download PDF for this date

When the Council of the Jewish Agency is formed, Dr. Chaim Weizmann may establish his residence in Jerusalem as the president of that body, states the Hebrew labor organ, “Davar,” today.

The proposal, according to the newspaper, has come from “a few leading figures in the Jewish Agency negotiations,” who desired that Dr. Weizmann spend at least six months of each year in Palestine.
