President Coolidge Declares Sympathy with Zionism

The convention of the New England Zionist Region here heard a message from President Coolidge confirming his sympathy with the Zionist movement. The following message was addressed by the President to the Hon. Elihu D. Stone, Assistant United States Attorney, who is chairman of the New England Zionist Region:

“I regret that the pressure of other duties will prevent me from attending the Convention of the Zionist Organization of New England at Worcester on June 1st, but I hope that you will extend to the delegates assembled my good wishes on this occasion. I have so many times reiterated my interest in this great movement that anything which I might say would be a repetition of former statements, but I am nevertheless glad to have this opportunity to express again my sympathy with that deep and intense longing which finds such fine expression in the Jewish National Homeland in Palestine.”
