The resignation of Louis Lipsky as chairman of the American Zionist Council, representing seven national Zionist groups in this country, was announced today.

“It is impossible to cope with the confusions of functions and authority that prevail in the Zionist movement in the United States,” Mr. Lipsky stated in his letter of resignation. He took office in the Council in September, 1949, following the resignation of Dr. Abba Hillel Silver.
