As an expression of mourning at the death of Louis Marshall, the Jerusalem Zionist Executive office was closed today at noon. Messages of condolence were sent to Jacob Billikopf, son-in-law of the late Mr. Marshall, and to Felix M. Warburg.

The message to Mr. Warburg read: “The death of Louis Marshall adds to the Palestine disaster from which the Yishub and the entire Jewish people are only beginning to recover. We lament the great loss at a time when Marshall’s leadership and counsel were urgently required. To his bereaved we offer comfort. Our feeling of loss is shared by all Jews.

“Louis Marshall crowned his magnificent career of service to his people by bringing to fruition the Jewish Agency, uniting all people in the reconstitution of the homeland.
