The Jewish Telegraphic Agency will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

Sir Herbert Samuel, Eritish High Commissioner for Palestine, arrived in London last night. He refused to make any statement, successfully evading the questions fired at him at the station.

He called at the Colonial Office this morning, where it is understood he interviewed the Colonial Secretary, the Duke of Devonshire. There is reason to believe the subject of discussion between the High Commissioner and the Secretary was the situation that has arisen in Palestine in consequence of the resignation of the Arab members of the Advisory Council.
