Great Britain must not falter in the execution of its promises towards the establishment of Palestine as the Jewish national home. This was the substance of an address by General Smuts, South African Prime Minister in opening a Jewish fete Tuesday.

“It will be an evil day” said Smuts “for the British Empire if it ever deserts the ideal of a definitely achieved national home for the Jewish people”.
