Moshe Shertok, political chief of the Jewish Agency, who has arrived here to head the political department of the Agency’s Washington branch, conferred today with Under-Secretary of State Dean Acheson and other State Department officials. He also saw British ambassador Lord Inverchapel.

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, Shertok outlined the stand of the Zionist leadership on the Palestine question and gave reporters an off-the-record “fill-in” on various aspects of the problem.
