The Head Office of the J. N. F. has stated that the authorities of the famous British Museum, London, have accepted the offer of the Fund to deposit with it, among its other noteworthy exhibits, a replica of a special volume of the Golden Book which will record the names of the 5,000 contributors to the Fund for a Memorial Project to the late Earl Balfour in Palestine. It is expected to raise $500,000 for this purpose. Particular enthusiasm has been evidenced for this project among the Jews of Palestine, where the present political situation has intensified the efforts on behalf of the Memorial to Jewry’s greatest friend.
