Rabbi Barnett Brickner, Cleveland,
Addresses Banquet At Women's
League Building
"The wol.k of Avuka- min creatiiig
and developing a philosophy of
Jewish life among university stu-
dents based upon the perception
of the prime value of a JewisNh
Palestine to Jewish I-fe everywhere
and of the duty resting upon all.
Jews to share to the utmost of their
ability in the creation of such a.
Jewish Palestine, is fundamental to.
an intelligent approach to the
problem which confronts Jewish
youth today," declared James Wa-
terman Wise, executive secretary,.
before yesterday's session of Avu-,
kah, national student Zionist body,.j
meeting in Lane Hall. Wise em-
phasized the necessity of an intel-
ligent youth in influencing the Zi-
onist movement.
In delive..ing his annual report,.
he asserted that one of Avukah's
outstanding achievements of the
year had been the formation at its
instigation of an Emergency Com-
mittee to take immediate steps re-'
garding the anti-Semitic excesses
in European university centers. This
group, which was composed of re-
presentatives of leading Christian
as well as Jewish organizations, ap-
pointed Wise as its secretary.
The greater part of yesterday's
session of the three day conference
was devoted to a heated discus-
sion of the "Palestine project," a
colonization scheme which was
contested by many of the delegates.
The plan calls for the subsidization
by Avukah of a permanent agricul-
tural colony, composed of gradu-
ates of Palestinian secondary
schools, which will work out its so-
cial and economic problems and
serve as a model. The colony would
aim to arrive at a solution which
would halt the emigration of Pal-
estinian youth which is becoming
serious because of the dissatisfac-
tion with present conditions. The
project would also act as a train-
ing school for a few who would
carry their experience. into other
sections of the country.
Due to the illness of Nahum So-
kolow, president of World Zionist
executive committee, who was un-
able to leave New York City, the
annual Avukah banquet in the Wo-
men's League building last night,
was addressed by Rabbi Barnett
Bricker, eminent Cleveland Re-
formed Jewish divine. Other speak-
ers included Max Rhoade, national
p esident of Avukah, Samuel Blum
enfield, president of the New Yotki
chapter, and Maurice B. Pekarski
president of the Michigan chapyter.

r Poincare Seeks
To Defer Debts
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, June 28.-Pushed on by
almost unanimous parliamentary
opposition, Premier Poincare sent
to Washington today another plea
for postponement beyond Aug. 1 of
maturity of France's debt or $400,-
000,000 incurred in purchase of
American war stocks left in France
when the A. E. F. went back home.
The premier's plea was1 both un-
willing and with little hope of suc-
cess, but was madehnecessary by a
resalution of the chamber of dep-
uties in the first hour today asking
that Ambassador Claudel seek post-
ponement of the majority date so
that France would not be rushed
in ratification of the Mellon-Ber-
enger debt accord. The debt ac-
cord would include the war stocks
debt in the general war debt to the
United States.

WASHINGTON, June 28.-Sug-I

American government to Greatl
Britain that the naval disarma-

without sufficient preparation.
