Freiman Will Not Receive Jabotinsky Officially

A. J. Freiman, president of the Canadian Zionist Organization, said in answer to a question concerning the approaching visit to this country of Vladimir Jabotinsky, Revisionist leader, the following:

“I do not recognize Jabotinsky as a Zionist representative. Officially I shall not receive Jabotinsky. I shall go to listen to what he has to say. I shall not be on his platform.”

Mr. Freiman maintained he was misquoted in dispatches earlier this week which ascribed to him the following statement:

“I do not recognize Jabotinsky as a Zionist, since he broke the discipline of the World Zionist Congress.”
