Judge Brandeis Has Three-day Conference on Problems Confronting New Zionist Executive with Mr. Emanu

The present Zionist situation and the current problems confronting the new Zionist Executive have been under discussion at a three-day Conference which Judge Brandeis has had at his summer home in Chatham with Mr. Emanuel Neumann, member of the new Zionist Executive, who made a special journey to Chatham for the purpose.

Mr. Neumann is anxious to proceed to London as soon as possible, particularly in view of the change in the British Government, but he is detained in America by several matters, among them the question of the leadership of the Jewish National Fund in America, of which he has been President, and the arrangements for the New Year campaign of the Keren Hayesod.

Although Mr. Neumann is regarded as a Brandeisist, he also enjoys, however, the confidence and support of those American Zionists who are in opposition to the present Brandcis-Mack Administration of the American Zionist Organisation, and the New York Zionist Region, for instance, of which Mr. Louis Lipsky, the leader of the Opposition, is President, has decided to give Mr. Neumann a public reception in honour of his election to the Zionist World Executive.
