One delegate to the Zionist Congress has had to fly in order to get here on time, it is learned today. He is Professor Nahum Slousch, well-known Hebrew scholar and Palestine explorer, formerly Professor of Hebrew Literature at the Sorhonne. The German Consul in Paris refused to vise his passport to permit him to pass through Germany, to Carlsbad. The Professor immediately applied to the French authorities and the War Ministry arranged for an aeroplane to convey the Zionist passenger via Strassburg. The Journey was made in five hours.
