Confirmation that in addition to the efforts made in Zionist quarters in America to bring about an amicable understanding between the two contending groups in the American Zionist movement, the Zionist Executive in London has also been taking action in this direction, has been obtained by the J.T.A. here.

Mr. Nahum Sokolov and the other members of the London Executive have made a strong appeal to the contending parties to come to an arrangement, the J.T.A. learns, and Mr. Emanuel Neuman, being on the spot in America, exercised in particular every possible effort to bring about agreement.

By agreement with his colleagues in London, Mr. Neuman remained in United States, where, in addition to occupying himself with various political and financial questions affecting Palestine, he was able to exercise his influence and his knowledge of American Zionist affairs to help to bring about a satisfactory arrangement.

According to the agreement, all controversy about the Congress and its various issues will come to an end, and an immediate and close union for constructive Zionist work will come into effect. At the American Zionist Convention which is to take place on November 8th. a new and intensive campaign will be launched for the Keren Hayesod and the Jewish National Fund, and an effort will be made for the organisation of private initiative in Palestine on the lines of Mr. Israel Brodie’s plan as adopted by Congress. Full support and loyalty in America is to be given to Mr. Sokolov and the present Zionist Executive by the united American Zionist Organisation.
