Lakser Street, Part II

Davar, March 17th, 1950, p. 29. See below for translation

We had already noted that there is an Emanuel Lasker street in Tel Aviv. Our frequent correspondent Moshe Roytman had found the date the street was named after him. This short notice, 'A Street in Tel Aviv Named After Emanuel Lakser', tells us the Tel Aviv Lasker chess club's management asked the city council to name a street after Lasker, and the city council accepted this 'a few days ago'. (Update 25/12/2014: And thanks to Mr. Roytman for correcting my spelling mistake in the title of this post)!
