Peace Restored in Confederation of General Zionists; Goldstein Re-elected President

Peace was restored today within the Confederation of General Zionists following a compromise reached between the faction led by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver and Benjamin Browdy and the Progressive group led by Dr. Nahum Goldmann. Both groups agreed on a compromise calling for a 20-man steering committee for the organization.

Unity was marked with the holding of a plenary conference at which Dr. Israel Goldstein was re-elected Confederation president. Dr. Emanuel Neumann and Mrs. Rose Halprin were elected vice-presidents. All three, as well as Dr. Goldmann, addressed the conference.

The parties also agreed that neither the General Zionist Party nor the Progressive Party in Israel is to seek further identification declarations from General Zionist groups in any country outside of Israel.
