The Seventh International Congress for the Suppression of White Slave Traffic was opened here today. Many Jewish delegates, including representatives of American organizations, are participating in the congress.

Mrs. Weinberg, of the National Council of Jewish Women; Alfred M. Cohen, president of the Independent Order B’nai Brith; Dr. and Mrs. Louis Mann, Mrs. Alexander Kohut, Mrs. Henry Moscowitz, Dr. Maurice Hexter, Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Miss Carrie Wise, are attending the sessions. Chief Rabbi Hertz, with the Bishop of London, Marquis Aberdeen, and the Rey, Horton, welcomed the delegates. Claude Montefiore is a member of the International Bureau.


Dr. Solomon Lowenstein, Executive Director of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies in New York, arrived yesterday on the steamer Albert Ballin from a visit to Palestine.

“The Hebrew University is the institution which most inspired me in Palestine,” Dr. Lowenstein stated to a representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

“The crisis is being handled with a good deal of tact. The spirit of the Jewish worker is admirable and the situation promises hopeful solution. The British administration is trying its best to solve the problems in the country.”

A drive for the purpose of establishing a community center in a building purchased recently was launched in Binghamton, N. Y.

The plans at present are to build an auditorium-gymnasium, with stage, dressing room, showers and lockers. The present building and the proposed building will be connected.

Hiram Goldsmith is chairman of the campaign committee.
