Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, was received by President Coolidge at the White House today. Dr. Weizmann was accompanied by Henry Getty Chilton, the Charge d’Affaires of the British Embassy.

It is understood that Dr. Weizmann described to the president the progress of the upbuilding of the Jewish National Home in Palestine. Dr. Weizmann arrived from Europe last Friday on his fourth visit to the United States. It was recalled in connection with Dr. Weizmann’s reception by the president that President Coolidge has on more than one occasion expressed his sympathy for the upbuilding of the Jewish homeland in Palestine.

Dr. Weizmann returned to New York today in connection with his special mission to the United States which is concerned with the creation of the Jewish Agency and the launching of the $7,500,000 United Palestine Appeal.
