Fifth—In order that the Administration, after December 31, 1930 may be free to devote itself to the task of reorganization and rehabilitation and to the development of its plan for future usefulness, provision must be made, before it assumes office for the extended term for:

a. Payment of all the then existing indebtedness of the Z.O.A.; and the discharge of all financial obligations, legal or moral, arising out of the past.

b. A fund deemed by us sufficient to defray the reasonable administrative expenses for the year beginning January 1, 1931, including in such administrative expenses the cost of a necessary publication.


If the Convention adopts the proposal contained in articles First, Second, Third, and Fourth above, we shall be willing to cooperate with the Administration elected by the Convention and other Zionists in raising funds required by (a) and (b) of this article, the latter for use by the Administration during the extended period.

Sixth—If the Administration plan proposed is adopted it must be by the act of others than the members of our group. We shall not put forth any propaganda to secure its adoption by the Convention, or to influence the action of the Convention with respect to the continuance of the present method of control, management or personnel.
