London (Mar. 19)
The Executive of the Zionist Organisation informs the Jewish Telegraphic Agency to-day that the special propaganda campaign known as the Sokolov Month, in honour of Mr. Nahum Sokolov’s 70th. birthday, is meeting with great success in several countries. According to reports received from Mr. Felix Rosenblueth, member of the Executive, who is at present touring Eastern and Central Europe and has already visited Warsaw, Lemberg, and Cracow, preparations are made everywhere to secure by the united efforts of all Zionist parties an appreciable increase in the membership of the local Federations and in the numbers of shekolim sold. In Congress Poland it is hoped to achieve the quota of 120,000 shekolim, while the Federations in East and West Galicia, which have already achieved record figures, have pledged themselves to continue their efforts. The idea of establishing united organisations, comprising Zionists of all parties, has found strong support in both East and West Galicia. It is intended to call a conference in the near future to discuss the most urgent organisation problems prior to the Seventeenth Congress. Mr. Rosenblueth, who conferred everywhere with local Zionist leaders and with the Young Zionist organisations, reports an encouraging growth in the membership of the junior societies. especially the Hechaluz, and also among the so-called General Zionists. Mr. Rosenblueth is proceeding to Czernowitz, Jassy, Bucharest, Vienna and Machrisch-Ostrau.
