U.S. Hadassah and Zionists Expected to Put Coalition Ticket into World Congress

far has not been brought up in the open sessions of the convention it has quietly occupied the attention of the leaders for a long time.

It is generally realized that, considering the present state of affairs, the Zionist Organization of America has little alternative but to accede to the Hadassah demands for fuller voice in American Zionist councils.

The chief opposition to the coalition ticket, it was learned, came from the group supporting Dr. Chaim Weizmann, who sought a full delegation to the world congress favoring his return to the presidency of the organization.


The resolutions committee at its meeting today is expected to produce for tomorrow’s session resolutions calling for the return of Dr. Weizmann to the presidency of the world organization. However, the tone of the committee’s demand may be modified in view of recent events.

The resolutions committee also is expected to make a definite proposal for a new agreement concerning the relationship of the Zionist Organization of America with affiliated bodies, especially Hadassah and the Sons of Zion.

The proposal is likely to follow the outlines suggested by Morris Margulies, which embody the idea of the opinions of a majority ruling the administration.
