A statement to the effect that there is no doubt that the Zionist rank and file and the Zionist administration in the United States are prepared to go a long way to have Justice Louis D. Brandeis return to the helm and resume his leadership of the movement was made here today to the “Jewish Indicator” by Abraham Goldberg, vice-president of the Zionist Actions Committee and a member of the Administrative Committee of the Zionist Organization of America.

Mr. Goldberg said too “it is clear also that the Zionists really would like to see all elements and all factions united on a common platform. It is their conviction that this would involve too many compromises. Zionists will regret that no way has yet been found at the last conference in Washington with Justice Brandeis to establish peace in our midst.”

Referring to what happened at the Cleveland convention of 1921, Mr. Goldberg declared that in spite of that “Zionists have not relinquished hope for one moment that this great leader will return when the need will arise. This moment has come. We manifestly need his guidance and influence in this critical hour of our movement.”

In regard to what is known as the Brandeis policy Mr. Goldberg explained that he does “not believe that there is much or any opposition left. On the contrary, if I gauge conditions rightly, the Zionists are ready to accept in the main the program enunciated by Justice Brandeis.”
