Download PDF for this date

Speaking to more than 1500 persons gathered at the 36th annual dinner of the Order Sons of Zion in the Commodore Hotel tonight, Senator Guy Gillette, co-sponsor of the Palestine resolution in the Senate, demanded the immediate nullification of the White Paper and urged the United States Government to use its legal prerogative and its moral influence to prevent the further violation of the Balfour Declaration which promised the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

The Senator was joined in his plea to keep the doors of Palestine open to Jewish immigration by Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, Dr. Stephen S. Wise, Louis Lipsky and Harry A. Pine, Grandmaster of the Order Sons of Zion. The dinner was given in honor of Judge Morris Rothenberg, newly elected president of the Jewish National Fund of America.
