Felix M. Warburg, chairman of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, today issued an urgent call for a meeting of the American members of the Committee to be held Wednesday afternoon at the offices of the Committee, 40 Exchange Place, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency announces.

The members are Lt. Gov. Herbert H. Lehman, Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, James Becker of Chicago, Bernard Flexner, president of the Palestine Economic Corporation, Dr. Lee K. Frankel, vice-president of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, Judge William M. Lewis of Philadelphia, Morris Rothenberg, Alexander Kahn and Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum.

The meeting will decide what steps are to be taken in consequence of the statement issued by the British government regarding its policy on Palestine and the report of Sir John Hope Simpson which documents have aroused deep disappointment in Zionist and non-Zionist circles.

Mr. Warburg will inform the meeting of his decision to resign as chairman of the Committee which he announced today through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
