The delegation of the Canadian Jewish Congress which attended the San Francisco conference, today expressed satisfaction with the activities of Jewish organizations there. The delegation, which was headed by Samuel fronfman, has just returned.

In a statement issued here, the delegation says that the experience at San Francisco proved the value of watchful observation of international developments by Jewish organizations. “Nevertheless,” the statement continued, “a difficult struggle is shead for Jews, as power politics and the desire for the maintenance of the status quo – as well as the rising of new anti-Jewish powers – tend to obfuscate justice for Jewish claims.”

A. B. Bennett, a member of the delegation, emphasized that the delegates of the Canadian Government, as well as the civil service experts, were most helpful to the delegation of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
