Download PDF for this date

The announcement by Dr. Stephen S. Wise that an agreement had been reached between the various Zionist groups by which Dr. Israel Goldstein is to be the only nominee for the presidency of the Zionist Organization at its convention in Columbus on September 12, has been acclaimed in many parts of the country, Zionist circles reported here today.

Among the larger Zionist groups which took action this week to approve the agreement were the Chicago Zionist Organization and the Ohio Valley Zionist Region.

In Portland, the Zionist organization adopted similar resolutions, stressing the essential need of harmony in Zionist ranks at the present time.

The Connecticut Zionist Region similarly this week endorsed the action announced by Dr. Wise after his conference with Zionist leaders, as did the Empire State Zionist Region at its meeting in Kingston and the Western New York region at its sessions in Buffalo.
