Download PDF for this date

The resignation of Sir Harold MacMichael as High Commissioner for Palestine was hailed last night by Louis Lipsky, new president of the B’nai Zion, at ceremonies during which he and other officers of the fraternal organization were inducted. Pointing out that MacMichael’s regime was marked by the introduction of the 1939 White Paper, Lipsky expressed the hope that the new administration would adopt a more favorable policy toward Jewish aspirations. Mr. Lipsky outlined to the gathering the expanded program of activities in support of practical Zionist objectives and Hebrew cultural endeavors which was voted at the recent 35th annual convention of B’nai Zion, formerly known as Order Sons of Zion.
