Holds Zionist Congress Must Tell Britain It Bars Cantonization

The Twentieth Zionist Congress will have to tell England in positive terms the Jews will never consent to cantonization of Palestine, Gedaliah Bublick, former president of the World Mizrachi Organization, declared yesterday before the American Mizrachi, in session here.

Mr. Bublick, who lives in Palestine, told the 700 delegates and guests at Mizrachi’s twentieth convention in the Breakers Hotel that the Jews would not stand for curtailment of the upbuilding of their homeland or a breach of Great Britain’s covenant with them.

He said Mizrachi will bring to the congress a formal charge of violation of the 1935 congress’ agreement with Mizrachi on protection of religion in Palestine.
