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

A new Arab party has been formed here and has published its program. It announces that it will cooperate with the government, if the government shows any disposition to accept in part its demands.

Its program calls for the absolute rejection of the Balfour Declaration and the present Palestine Constitution. A new constitution is demanded which should include provisions for a Palestine Parliament and compulsory elementary education. The party is also opposed to the “asher” (tax).
