(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Philip Guedalla, well known English novelist and president of the Zionist Federation of Great Britain, was feted at a luncheon given by the London Zionists prior to his departure for the United States.

Mr. Guedalla tated that his mission to America was of a personal nature. He stated, however, that he would be in touch with American Zionists and would learn the methods of work in America.


A delegation of rabbis and representatives of Jewish organizations protested to the Board of Estimates against the creation of the Interborough Parkway, connecting Brooklyn and Queens.

They said fifty or more bodies would have to be disinterred in Mr. Carmel Cemetery and as many more in two other Jewish cemeteries.

At the suggestion of Mayor Walker action on the parkway project was deferred for a week so that the rabbis might confer with Borough Presidents Connolly of Queens and Byrne of Brooklyn.
