(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The assertion that Palestine is the headquarters of a new Communist plot with the immediate aim of creating a Jewish Arab federation was made by Percival Phillips, traveling correspondent of the London “Daily Mail” in a report published today.

Agents travel regularly between Moscow and Jerusalem, the correspondent asserts, the first effort of the Communists being the attempt to capture the Histadruth, Palestine Jewish labor federation. A secret propaganda col-lege for Communist agitators was opened in Jaffa and Jerusalem, the correspondent states.

The “Daily Mail” comments editorially upon this despatch, without at-tacking Zionism.
