The first conference of the American Friends of National Labor in Palestine will be held at the Hotel Pennsylvania today, the provisional committee in charge of arrangements announced.

According to the call issued by the committee, the conference is to “proclaim moral support for the newly-organized National Labor Organization of Palestine.” The National Labor Organization was organized under the auspices of the Revisionists, right-wing Zionists, who are opposed to the Laborites.

The aims of the National Labor group, according to the committee, are the solution of the Jewish problem through the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine; creation of non-partisan employment bureaus and exclusive use of Jewish labor in Jewish enterprises.

Among the members of the provisional committee are Jacob De Haas, Municipal Court Justice Nathan Sweedler, Isaac Allen, and Dr. Samuel Wurzel.
