Students Listen to Jabotinsky

Vladimir Jabotinsky, president of the World Union of Zionist Revisionists, was to address American Jewish students Saturday night in a mass meeting in the auditorium of the City College School of Business and Civic Administration, Lexington avenue and Twenty-third street.

A brilliant writer and orator in many languages, Jabotinsky is said to be perhaps the most magnetic personality among Zionist leaders. He was the founder of the Jewish Legion, which fought with the Allies in Palestine during the World War.

“Zionism as an Absolute Philosophy” was to be his subject. The mass meeting was arranged by the Manhattan chapter of Avukah, American Student Zionist Federation. Jabotinsky’s appearance is part of a program of meetings at which spokesmen for the various Zionist factions will expound their views.

The Revisionist chieftain was to be welcomed by a special committee of students and alumni representing every college and university in Greater New York.
