The program of the League of Zionist Revisionists, aimed at bringing about a quicker tempo in the development of the Jewish National home in Palestine, was presented to a Palestinian audience by Vladimir Jabotinsky, leader of the League, who is on a visit here.

Ten thousand people attended an open air meeting and listened to Jabotinsky’s lecture in which he described his program and commented on the present situation in Tel Aviv. He was received with great ovations by the audience.

A religious census at the University of Chicago, in which 5,103 students recorded their church affiliation, shows the Jews with the second largest group, 658. They were out-numbered by the Methodists who have 686 students. One thousand and sixty-nine students failed to record their church preference.
