Weizmann Cancels Trip After Macdonald Speech

Download PDF for this date

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, will not proceed to Geneva but is returning tomorrow night to London. The reason for Dr. Weizmann cancelling his trip to Geneva is given to be Premier MacDonald’s favorable speech in Geneva and the Colonial Office’s statement today, appointing a Commission of Enquiry and declaring it does not contemplate any change in the tenure of the Mandate for Palestine.

In Zionist circles here it is felt that the Colonial Office’s statement is satisfactory as far as it goes but that much more should have been added in the way of satisfactions of the Zionists’s demands. There is hope, however, that the Colonial Office will, in a normal administrative manner, answer the questions left open.

A trust fund for the establishment of four perpetual scholarships to educate the young Jewish men and women of Bohemia, was one of the privisions of the will of Morris Adelberg, filed for probate in civil court,. New Orleans. Mr. Adelberg was a native of Bohemia. He also included several other endowments.
