Gruenbaum Opposes Fight on Weizmann; Demands Resignation

A demand by Robert Stricker, leader of the Radical Zionists of Austria, that the conference start a fight against Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, was opposed by Deputy Isaac Gruenbaum, leader of the Radical Zionists of Poland, at the world conference of Radical Zionists which began here yesterday. Deputy Gruenbaum was of the opinion that a formal resolution by the conference calling upon Dr. Weizmann to resign was sufficient.

At the conference 120 delegates were present repreesnting Radical Zionist groups in Poland, Germany, Roumania, Czechoslovakia, Austria and Palestine. Mr. Stricker presided. A praesidium was elected consisting of Messrs. Stricker, Max Soloweitschik of Germany, Leo Wilensky of Palestine, and M. Wechsler, S. Mizrach and J. Kraemer of Roumania.
