British Labor Party Urged to Press Fight; Congress Elections Dropped

A cable by American Jewish labor leaders to the British Labor Party urging continuation of its efforts to obtain withdrawal of the White Paper was made public today by the National Labor Committee for Palestine. Signers of the message included Adolph Held, Joseph Schlossberg, Abraham Cahan and Maurice Feinstone.

Because of the Palestine crisis, the Central Shekel and Election Board announced its decision to present a single slate of delegates for the 21st biennial session of the World Zionist Congress in Geneva next August. The board represents all groups and parties in the American Zionist movement. The action eliminates necessity of balloting for delegates, originally scheduled for June 11, and permits of continuation of the shekel registration campaign until that date.
