Download PDF for this date

James H. Becker of Chicago, a member of the Committee of Seven appointed by Louis Marshall to name the American Non-Zionist representatives on the Jewish Agency returned yesterday from a trip to Europe on the Steamer Leviathan. Mr. Becker was accompanied by Mrs. Becker. They spent several months in Europe.

“I was not in New York during the Non-Zionist Conference on Palestine but I concur heartily with the decision reached there. I believe in the future of the Jewish Agency and in the great possibilities which it may create for the rebuilding of Palestine,” he said.
