(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The complaint that Great Britain is gradually assuming rule over Transjordania is voiced by several Arab newspapers here.

The papers report that Mr. Seaton, president of the Jaffa District Court, was appointed judicial advisor to the Transjordanian government and Mr. Wright, another British official in Palestine, was appointed financial advisor to the Transjordanian government. British advisors to the departments of Customs, Posts and Education will also be appointed shortly, the papers state.
