(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Views on the present political situation in Palestine were expressed by Dr. Chaim Waizmann and Dr. Arlosoroff, member of the Vaad Leumi delegation, at a public reception given to the delegation by the Zionist Organization here.

“We have achieved no practical results from the last session of the Permanent Mandates Commission,” Dr. Weizmann declared. “We are the most interesting but the most troublesome child of the League of Nations. It is essential that the League of Nations watch the process of growth in Palestine. If Great Britain has refused to listen to our expostulations, it will listen to public opinion as expressed in Geneva,” Dr. Weizmann declared.

In his address, Dr. Arlosoroff mentioned the fact that a Palestine official told him that Palestinians are considered as Englishmen everywhere outside of England. The Palestine mandate, Dr. Arlosoroff said, belongs to a special category. The recognition of the experiment of the upbuilding of Palestine has the greatest significance in the political world, Dr. Arlosoroff stated. He urged closer cooperation with the International Labor Office of the League of Nations.
