Plans for an excursion of Jewish students from all parts of the world to Palestine during the coming Passover were adopted at the conclusion today of the first world conference of Zionist student corporations. The conference, which opened here July 22, was attended by over one hundred delegates from eleven countries.

Resolutions were adopted protesting against the suspension of immigration to Palestine, the persecution of Zionists in Soviet Russia, the activities of the Brith Shalom Society and Dr. Judah L. Magnes in Palestine. It was also decided to establish a world union of Zionist student corporations.
