World Jewish Congress Favors Change in C. O. J. O. Voting Procedures

The National Council of the British section of the World Jewish Congress voted last night to support a change in voting procedures of the Conference of Jewish Organizations.

A meeting of COJO is scheduled for August 14 in Geneva which will be devoted principally to organizational problems. In connection with that meeting, the executive council of Australian Jewry circulated a draft memorandum proposing elimination of the present voting system under which each member organization can veto any proposal and substituting instead a majority vote system. The British section of the WJC approved that proposal and informed the world executive of the WJC accordingly.
