See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Zionist Central Committee in Congress Poland has decided to call a conference of all Zionist members of Jewish Communities and Municipalities in Poland to lay down the lines of a unified Zionist policy on those bodies, by which all Zionist members will be bound.

The question of the Parliamentary seat of Deputy Gruenbaum, the Honorary President of the Polish Zionist Federation, who is leaving Poland to live in Paris, came up at the meeting of the Central Committee. Deputy Gruenbaum had notified the Committee that he was prepared to relinquish his seat in favour of ex-Deputy Hartglass, on whose motion, however, the Committee has decided that Deputy Gruenbaum should retain his seat, and although he would be living out of the country, he should be in his place whenever his duties as a Deputy of, the Seym, and a representative of Polish Jewry require.

Deputy Gruenbaum addressed yesterday a big public meeting in the Nowo#zi Theatre here, on “the sum total of my wor# in Poland from 1918-1932″, tracing the developments during this period, explaining his reasons for going to live abroad for a time, and outlining the prospects of Polish Jewry for the future.
