The “Juedische Rundschau”, the organ of the German Zionist Federation, states that it learns that the Jewish Agency Executive has approached Dr. Weizmann to ask him to conduct an extraordinary Keren Hayesod campaign in South Africa. Dr. Weizmann is said to have declared himself ready to undertake the mission, but no definite arrangements have yet been made. No official confirmation is available, however.

The Zionist Organisation informs the J.T.A. here that Dr. Weizmann has consented to go to South Africa in December for the Keren Hayesod.
