The board of directors of the Zionist Review, Ltd. publishers of the Jewish Observer and Middle East Review, today appointed Maurice Samuelson, assistant editor of the publication, as acting editor.

Earlier this month, Jon Kimche, editor of the weekly, was dismissed from his post in a dispute over his insistence on the publication of an article on Israeli unemployment. Dr. L. Schafler, who had served as acting editor since Mr. Kimche’s dismissal, has been named managing editor.
