Mrs. Charlotte Jacobson, a past president of Hadassah and a senior member of the World Zionist Organization, American section will probably be elected chairman of the American section of the World Zionist Executive when it holds its first post-Congress session in New York next Monday. Louis A. Pincus, WZO Executive chairman who will attend the meeting, said yesterday that he would nominate Mrs. Jacobson and that he expected his proposal to be approved. Missing from the newly elected WZO Executive will be Sam Rothberg, general chairman of the Israel Bond Organization, who was a coopted member of the outgoing Executive.

Rothberg left the Zionist Congress last Thursday to bring a group of Western hemisphere Bond leaders to Israel from New York. When he returned with them yesterday he learned for the first time that he was not included in the new Executive and expressed surprise. Pincus said that the World Confederation of General Zionists which has three seats on the Executive, did not propose Rothberg’s name. Rothberg was elected to the Board of Governors of the reconstituted Jewish Agency last summer and will continue to serve as a member.
