More than 300 delegates of the Order B’nai Zion assembled here today to attend their three-day national convention which opens tomorrow.

In an address prepared for the opening session, Louis Lipsky, president of the organization, lauded the Jewish resistance movement in Palestine and charged Britain with engaging in a “selfish, aggressive war” against the Jews, bent not only on keeping all Jews out of Palestine, but also on excluding all except English goods.
