See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Ab Cahan, editor of the Jewish Daily Forward, returned Friday from England, where he attended the opening of the new Labor Parliament, at the invitation of the British Laborites. Mr. Cahan was accorded a warm welcome at the pier by Jewish labor leaders and Socialists. He assmed

the Forward immediately upon his arrival and in the evening addressed a group of interested friends at the Hotel Brevoort on his observations in England.

Mr. Cahan described the English masses and the class war which is now being waged in England. He characterized the members of the new Labor Ministry and described the various elements in the Labor Government. Mr. Cahan said that the new Labor Government is more successful than the Laborites themselves expected. Mr. Cahan will speak at a big meeting in the Second Avenue Theatre, Sunday morning.
