Four thousand persons attending the 46th annual convention of the Workmen’s Circle, which opened here last night, enthusiastically applauded a statement by the organization’s president, Reuben Guskin, hailing the Anglo-American committee’s recommendation that 100,000 Jews be admitted to Palestine immediately and urging the British and U.S. Governments to carry out the transfer before the end of the year.

The meeting, which will continue for a week, heard a report on the Workmen’s Circle war-time contributions to Jewish and anti-Nazi underground groups in Europe and to post-war relief in Russia and other Allied countries. Representatives of the CIO and the AFL greeted the convention.
