A resolution urging Britain to “welcome the demands of the Palestine Jewish community to realize its natural right of fighting side by side with Great Britain against a common enemy” was adopted at today’s closing session of the 26th annual Hadassah convention. Mrs. David de Sola Pool was re-elected president.

Resolutions pledging full support for Britain and reminding it that in the fight for survival of the democratic ideal it must recognize the rights of the Jewish national home were passed at sessions yesterday.
