Complete re-organization of the Zionist Organization of America is proposed in a statement signed here today by Justice Louis D. Brandeis in which he outlines the terms on which he and his followers would be prepared to resume an active interest in the Zionist movement. The other signatories to this statement are Judge Julian W. Mack, Jacob de Haas and Robert Szold.

The statement was issued following a conference between the signatories and a committee of the Zionist Organization of America consisting of Rabbi James Heller, chairman of the administration of America, Dr. Israel Goldberg, David Freiberger and Dr. Nathan Ratnoff. The meeting took place this morning in the office of Justice Brandeis and the statement issued was in reply to overtures made at the meeting in Washington on March 26 by the Zionist committee.

The statement represents the first concrete indication of the Brandeis group
