Acts of Violence Increasing in Palestine

Mr. and Mrs. Stransky of Czechoslovakia, who were touring the world on foot, were attacked and robbed, early Thursday morning, by Arabs, at their camping place between Nablus and Jenin. Mr. Stransky died of his wounds, while his wife is in a critical position. The two murderers have been arrested.

Another attack was made Thursday night. Two Jews who were returning home with their wives from a village near Jerusalem were attacked and seriously wounded. One is in a dying condition.
