London (Aug. 20)
The state of health of Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine and leader of the world Zionist movement, is causing considerable concern to his friends, the London Jewish Chronicle reports today. The paper says that Dr. Weizmann has lately been ordered to observe complete rest and is now staying in the country.
The Jewish Chronicle also reports that several of its issues have been banned by the censor in Palestine, the Colonial Office informing the editor that the ban was ordered because the issues carried “tendentious” articles on the Jewish State and the Jewish Army. (The New York laborite Zionist weekly publication. Yiddisher Kempfer, today reported that it has been banned in Palestine for the last two years, and even the Palestine newspapers are not permitted to receive it.)
