The first of these points is maxl mum Zionism, which means a Tewish Homeland taking in both sides of the .Jordan . , .

Morris MarguUes, energetic Secretary of the ZOA, says it's not at all surprising that radio commentator Ian Ross MacFarlane is such a, great friend of Zion . . . The amity is of long standing, as witnessed by the fact that in the State of Virginia the towns of Palestine and Macfarlan are very close neighbors . . .
