Dr. Sale W. Baron, professor of Jewish History, Literature and Institutions at Columbia University, will leave shortly to lecture in Johannesburg, Capetown and other centers throughout the Union of South Africa on the problems of Palestine and the communal and cultural problems of the Jews in America, it was announced today. He is to arrive in Johannesburg about the middle of June upon the invitation of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies, central organization of the Jewish communities in South Africa.

Professor Baron’s lectures will deal with general problems of post-war settlements, certain crucial phases in the evolution of modern nationalism and religion and contemporary trends in American public life.
