See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organization, who is on visit here, conferred with Baron Edmond Rothschild, known as the father of the oldest Jewish colonies in Palestine.

It is understood that Baron Edmond congratulated the Zionist leader warmly on the success of his negotiations for the extension of the Jewish Agency.

This expression of opinion represents a change of attitude on the part of Baron Edmond who, it is stated, was not in favor of the project last year when he was approached concerning the matter. His present concurrence, it was further stated, does not imply his intention to become himself a member of the Council of the Jewish Agency.
