The war will have been waged “largely in vain,” if a proper settlement of the Jewish problem is not made, Sir William Beveridge, author of he famous social security program, told a meeting to raise funds for a memorial to the last Brigadier Frederick Kisch, to be erected in Palestine.

“The persons who have a say in making the peace must see to it that the Jews have a place which will be their home and where they can continue to make contributions to culture and science,” Sir William said. Twelve-thousand dollars were raised at the meeting, which was attended by Brigadier Kisch’s widow.
