No sessions were held by the Actions Committee on the Sabbath. The meeting was resumed last night.

A reception for the delegates was held at the home of Dr. Nahum Sokolow, head of the world Zionist movement.

In the course of the debate on the political reports in which Rabbi Meyer Berlin, president of the World Mizrachi Organization and M. M. Ussishkin president of the Jewish National Fund participated, Mr. Ussishkin explained the reasons which prompted the Jewish National Fund to accept a compromise with regard to the leasing of the Wadi Hawareth land to Arabs.

The political debate is expected to conclude tomorrow. It is not expected, however, that the recommendations of the Political Committee with regard to the French report will be available before the end of the week.
