There was some strong oppo-
sition to the declaration, by
which the British government
proposed to allow Palestine,
which had just been conquered
from the Turks, to become a na-
tional home for the Jews.
Strongest opponent was the sole
Jewish member of the Cabinet,
E. S. Montagu, secretary for
India. He argued that to establish
a national home would be to "drive
the Jews back into the ghetto."
In a secret paper circulated among
his colleagues, which he called
"The Anti-Semitism of the Present
Government," Montagu said, "I
deny that Palestine is today as-
sociated with Jews or properly to
be regarded as a fit place for
them to live in."
The minutes report that he asked
the Cabinet how he could "ne-
gotiate with the peoples of India
on behalf of His Majesty's govern-
ment if the world had just been
told that His Majesty's govern-
ment regarded his (Montagu's)
national home as being in Turkish

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier
Monday in Parliament. Some mem-
bers of the coalition parties criti-
cized the budget for its income
tax increases. Both the Indepen-
dent Liberals and the National Re
ligious Party urged re-examination
of the increases.
Despite these expressed doubts,
the budget was approved by a vote
of 43 to 23 which reflected undi-
the Cabinet that Zionism was
"sentimental idealism which
would never be realized."
Foreign Secretary A. J. Balfour
convinced the majority however,
that "from a purely diplomatic
and political point of view it was
desirable that some declaration
favorable to the aspirations of the
Jewish nationalists should be made.
The vast majority of Jews in
Russia and America, as indeed all
over the world, now appeared to
be favorable to Zionism. If we
could make a declaration favorable
to such an ideal, we should be
able to carry on extremely useful
propaganda, both in Russia and

NEW YORK (JTA)—A non-Jew-
ish, former Prussian nobleman,
who said in his will he had been
helped by Jewish friends, has left
a bequest estimated at $250,000, to
United Hias Service, the 82-year-
old Jewish migration agency. His
total estate; estimated at a value
of $500,000; was ordered divided
equally between United Hias and
Francis Cardinal Spellman for use
of Catholic charities.
The bequests were made public
when the will was filed for probate
in Surrogate's Court. The donor
was Wolfram von Pannwitz, who
died Jan. 28 at the age of 76. Child-
less, he lived alone in a hotel in
this city. His only living relative
is a sister who resides in Wies-
baden, Germany. The will stated
specifically that "all my blood
relatives, near and remote, shall
be excluded from my inheritance,
there being special reasons for this,
The United Hias bequest was left
"for the purpose of assisting needy
and deserving Jewish immigrants
to the United States." The donor
explained in his last testament
that, three times, Jewish friends in
Europe and in the United States
had helped him "to make a decent
living" and stated: "This (the
United Hias bequest) is the only
way I can show my gratitude."
Von Pannwitz, a Lutheran, and a
scion of German nobility, was in
business in Berlin prior to World
War II, and left the German capi-
tal when Hitler assumed power.
Later, in Paris, he helped plot the
abortive scheme to assassinate
Hitler. In World War I, he was in
the German Air Corps as a cap-
tain, and was wounded in France.
He came to the United States in
1947, and became an American
citizen in 1952.
James P. Rice, executive direc-
tor of United Hias, acknowledged
gratefully today the notice of the
bequest, saying that "coincidental-
ly, $250,000 is the exact size of our
current deficit." He noted, how-
ever, that due to technicalities in
settling the estate, it may be some
time "before we actually get this
Rice announced that a check of
his agency's records showed that
Mr. von Pannwitz was brought to
the United States in 1947 with the
cooperation of two of the United
Hias predecessor organizations,
the Joint Distribution Committee's
immigration department and the
United Service for New Americans.
Both of these groups, along with
the old Hebrew Immigrant Aid
Society, merged to form the pres-
ent United Hias Service in 1954.
