(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Zionist Revisionists, affiliated with the League headed by Vladimir Jabotinsky, continued their deliberations on the second day of the conference in session here.

Richard Lichtheim, former member of the Zionist Executive, who recently joined the League, at yesterday’s session criticized the policy of the present Zionist Executive for “extending the Jewish Agency on the basis of a fifty-fifty proposition with the non-Zionists.”

If the new group has agreed to the Zionist program, then they must be considered Zionists. If not, let them form a separate body, he stated.

Vladimir Jabotinsky blamed the policy of the Palestine government as the chief cause for the present economic crisis. The agrarian, industrial and political policy has failed. “Dr. Weizmann’s statement in America that everything is well in Palestine should be formally refuted,” he stated. Mr. Jabotinsky termed the policy of the Zionist Executive opportunist and stated that it was not endeavoring to defend the just demands of the Jews in Palestine. It is necessary to appeal to English public opinion, which is uninformed of the real state of affairs in Palestine, he stated.

Mr. Grossman stated that the Zionist organization has assumed in Palestine functions which are the obligations of the state. The Zionist Organization must gradually transfer the education and health budgets to the Palestine, government.


Charity bequests totaling $410,000 were made in the will of Alexander Herman, retired broker, filed in Surrogate’s Court to dispose of an estate worth more than $1,000,000.

Legacies of $100,000 each are given to Mount Sinai Hospital and the Montefiore Hospital for Chronic Diseases. The Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews and the Hebrew Orphan Asylum each inherit $50,000, the Beth Israel Hospital $25,000 and the Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum and Home, the Eureka Benevolent Society and the Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco each $10,000.

Other public bequests are $15,000 to the Charity Organization Society and $5,000 each to the Lebanon Hospital, Mount Sinai Training School for Nurses, Young Men’s Hebrew Association, United Hebrew Charities and the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies.

Mr. Herman began his Wall Street career as a newsboy near the Curb Market, where, saving his money, he invested in stocks until he had accumulated $200,000.

Judge Gustave Hartman, grand master, has called a special conference of the Independent Order B’rith Abraham for this evening at Cooper Union. International problems concerning Jews will be considered.
