A report published in several European newspapers that Leonard Cohen of London, member of the Council of the Anglo-Jewish Association, will succeed the late Dr. Franz Philippson as president of the Jewish Colonization Association, was categorically denied in a statement issued by the Ica headquarters here.

No candidate has yet been proposed and the entire question will not be decided before the fall, it was declared.
