The 26th annual convention of the Labor Zionist Organization of America – Poale Zion – concluded here late last night following the adoption of a resolution calling on the United States Government to implement promises which it has made to expedite the transportation of Jewish refugees to Palestine and to give financial aid to enable the speedy establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine.

The delegates also lauded the Haganah and censured the “irresponsible” acts of dissident groups. Particular emphasis was placed on the necessity for Jewish-Arab cooperation and friendly relations between the two projected states. Zalman Rubashov, editor of Davar, Palestine Labor daily, addressed the session during the week-end. More than 300 delegates attended.
