Members of the New Zionist Organization, Revisionist group, were requested today to were black armbands in morning for Shlomo Ben Josef. Offices of the N.Z.O. and the Jewish Community were closed as a sign of mourning. Last night the N.Z.O. executive committee cabled ben Josef as follows: “happy is he who stands in the shadow of the gallows, facing a rising glory of jewry. Happy art thou to have been worthy of this.”
