New Zionist Student Organization to Be Established in United States

A four-day convention of about 300 Zionist students from 60 colleges and universities concluded here today with resolutions calling for the promotion of Hebrew language, the establishment of projects to benefit Israel culturally and economically and the creation of an educational program to combat Arab propaganda in American schools of higher learning.

The convention also decided to establish a new and permanent Zionist student organization in this country and to develop a Zionist education program among Jewish students on college campuses. Another resolution adopted by the delegates urged the encouragement of migration to Israel. The convention was held under the auspices of the American Zionist Council.
