See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

As a result of the efforts of the Zionist Organization of America, the Masada, Youth Zionist group, will meet in first annual convention at Niagara Falls during the holiday week-end of Dec. 23, 24 and 25. Elaborate plans will be laid for a nation-wide membership drive and other activities.

Sixty delegates will attend from New York City and suburbs. Thousands are expected from all parts of the country.

Masada came into existence at the Chicago convention last July as a result of the amalgamation of the Masada units of the Middle West and the Youth Zionist Organization. At the present time there are about forty affiliates. Officers include Isaac Imber, president; Israel Weiner, Detroit, co-chairman; Rabbi Nathan Rosen, Brooklyn; Sidney Guthman, Chicago, and Milton J. Selig, Philadelphia, vice-chairmen; Samuel Miller, New York, treasurer.
