Dr. Silver and Secretary of State Marshall Confer on Zionist Problems

Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver, president of the Zionist Organization of America, today conferred with Secretary of State George C. Marshall on current Zionist problems. Dr. Silver also saw several Senators.

Abdul Rahman Azzam Pasha, secretary-general of the Arab League, told a press conference today that the League does not favor the Palestine Arab Higher Committee’s boycott of the U.N. Special Committee on Palestine and that it attempted unsuccessfully to prevent the move. Adding that he personally was opposed to such action, Azzam Pasha said he believed that “it is better to try again and not take a negative attitude.”
