Download PDF for this date

The likelihood of an early visit to the United States by Nahum Sokolow, the newly-elected president of the World Zionist Organization, became a distinct possibility today when the American delegates to the Zionist Congress, which has just concluded, conferred with him regarding a trip to America.

At the conference it was decided that as soon as the American delegates returned to the United States they should immediately consult the administrative committee of the Zionist Organization of America in order to make the necessary preparations for the visit of Mr. Sokolow. The American delegates assured Mr. Sokolow of their energetic support of him as well as of the entire Zionist Executive.

Meanwhile Mr. Sokolow has been flooded with congratulations from all parts of the world. Today he received cabled congratulations from Justice Louis D. Brandeis of the United States Supreme Court, James de Rothschild, son of Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the nestor of Palestinian work, the Jewish National Council of Palestine, Col. Frederick Kisch, chairman of the outgoing Zionist Executive, numerous university professors and the Polish and Czecho-Slovakian governments.
