An organizer from the World Wide Executive Committee of the Gordonia, Zionist youth organization with headquarters in Palestine, will be invited to come to this country as a result of a resolution adopted Monday at the final session of a conference held here by the American branch of the group.

The conference, which began Sunday, was held at the Labor Zionist Center and was attended by approximately thirty delegates from the twelve American cities in which there are branches of the organization.

The representative of the executive committee will reorganize the American branch and will assist in widening its educational activities, it was explained.

Dr. Louis L. Kaplan, dean of the Baltimore Hebrew College and president of the Board of Jewish Education, and Dr. Herman Seidel, local Zionist Laborite leader, were the principal speakers at a mass meeting Sunday night. The conference, the fourth annual convention, was opened with the reading of a report by David Breslau, general secretary.
