All the delegates to the Congress of Esperantists held in Danzig visited the grave of Zamenhof in the Jewish cemetery here.

The praesidium of the Congress placed wreaths on the grave of the inventor of Esperanto. The praesidium is instituting efforts to have the resignation of Mr. Rabinavicius Zamenhof lived, changed to bear the name of their late leader.

The delegates will proceed to Bialy-stock on Sunday. On Monday they will unveil a memorial tablet at the house where Zamenhof was born. The unveiling committee appointed by the Congress includes the Bialystock Esperantist, Schapiro. Mr. Tiktin, president of the Bialystock Kehillah, was invited to attend the unveiling ceremonies as a representative of the Jewish population.
