General Jan Smuts, noted South African statesman, today sent the following message to the fourteenth South African Zionist Conference which is meeting at Cape Kimberley.

“Today more than ever, it is clear that the policy of a Jewish National Home is the right policy. Today more than ever, that ideal deserves the fullest backing from Jewry throughout the world. It shall be my one constant endeavor to advance that great cause to which we are all deeply pledged.”
