Download PDF for this date

Lady Isaac Isaacs, wife of Sir Isaac Alfred Isaacs, governor-general designee of Australia, today told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that she was not sure whether Sir Isaac would accept the appointment. The appointment of Sir Isaac created a great stir throughout the British Empore as it was said that he was not the choice of King George but of the Australian Labor party. Meanwhile great pressure is being brought to bear on Sir Isaac to make him accept the office.
