January 5, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Adverting to the rumors that Dr. Weizmann wishes to resign as President of the World Zionist Organization, the JEWISH WORLD says it thinks it would be “a good thing if Dr. Weizmann would now lay down the charge, at least for a while. “It is bad for any organization to be led indefinitely by one man or the same men” the paper asserts. “Although the JEWISH WORLD doesn’t altogether see eye to eye with James de Rothschild, it must confess that in the circumstances a much better successor would be difficult to find”…”But would Rothschild accept the office and will Dr. Weizmann resign?,” the JEWISH WORLD asks.
