New arrests of Zionists in Soviet Russia are reported in despatches received here from Moscow. In the last few weeks about 100 young Zionists were arrested in the Ukraine; 27 were arrested in Kiev; 50 in Winiza. Arrests were also made in Nikolayev and Charkow. The majority of the arrested Zionists were exiled. Six were permitted to emigrate to Palestine.

Rabbi Louis Kopald of Buffalo has been appointed rabbi of the North Shore Congregation Israel in Chicago. The new temple will be dedicated in Glencoe, a North Shore suburb of Chicago, next Friday night.
