Download PDF for this date

Confidence that the action of the Zionist convention in Cleveland in approving a coalition government which brought peace to American Zionism would strengthen the determination of the Jews in Palestine, was expressed in a statement issued yesterday by Robert Szold, newly elected head of the administrative committee of the Zionist Organization of America. Mr. Szold also said that as a result of plans discussed at an organization meeting Zionists in the United States would awaken to a new enthusiasm and follow a more definite policy of economic development.

Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, chairman of the committee on political affairs, which will determine the attitude of the Z.O.A. toward Great Britain, declared that the Zionists the world over are agreed that there must be no yielding of Jewish rights in Palestine. Rabbi Wise said that nothing was to be gained by yielding or purporting to yield the right of access to Palestine through orderly immigration and the right to purchase and cultivate land there.

In addition to the committee chairmen announced yesterday, Emanuel Neuman, president of the Jewish National Fund of America, was appointed chairman of the committee on public information which will acquaint the public with Zionist aims and achievements in Palestine.
