Remains of Dr. Tchlenov, Veteran Zionist Leader, Re-interred in Israel

The remains of Dr. Yechiel Tchlenov, a militant Zionist and an early supporter of the Chovevei Zion movement in Russia, who died in 1918, were laid to rest in the Old Cemetery here near the grave of the late Hebrew writer Shaul Tchernichovsky. The coffin was brought here from London by the Organization Department of the World Zionist Organization.
