the occasion,” the statement emphasized.

Mr. Rothenberg’s statement follows:

“The Zionist Organization today is the chief instrumentality for saving a large part of the Jewish people from the wreckage which engulfs it. It is of the utmost importance, therefore, that the policies of the Zionist movement be such as to confirm to basic Zionist ideals, and that the execution of such policies be entrusted to a leadership that will not be diverted by partisan points of view from the central goal of safeguarding the interests of the whole Jewish people in the upbuilding of the National Home. Ticket No. 1 represents a delegation deserving of the fullest confidence of the Zionists of America in the furtherance of these aims.

“Apart from the reasons given, the prestige of the Zionist Organization of America, the body carrying the major responsibility for Zionist activities in this country, requires that our ticket be victorious in the elections.”

Ticket No. 1, which represents a joint slate of the Zionist Organization of America, Hadassah and the Order Sons of Zion, is led by Mr. Rothenberg, Mrs. Edward Jacobs, president of Hadassah, Mrs. Samuel Halpern, former president of Hadassah, Judge Julian W. Mack, former president of the Zionist Organization, Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the American Jewish Congress, and Joseph Kraemer, head of the Order Sons of Zion.


Members of the League for Labor Palestine are free to vote for Ticket No. 1 of the General Zionists or any other ticket friendly to Labor ideals. An erroneous impression to the effect that the League is committed to the specific ticket of the Socialist-Zionist Party was corrected by Rabbi Samuel Wohl, president of the League, in a letter to the Zionist Organization of America, made public yesterday.


The hectare is equal to 100 ares (10,000 square meters), not 100 acres as was erroneously stated Friday in a dispatch from Moscow dealing with private ownership of land in Bureya. There are 2.471 acres in a hectare.
