(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Ibn Saud, Sultan of Nejd, King of Hedjas and leader of the Wahabis, feels slighted that he was not invited to affix his signature to the Kellogg Peace Treaty renouncing war as a national policy, according to despatches from Mecca to the Arabic press here.

The leader of the warlike tribes of the Arabian desert is resentful that neither he nor any other of the Oriental potentates was invited to the Paris conference. The despatches add that Ibn Saud would not affix his signature to the treaty renouncing war as a national policy unless he is invited to participate in a consultative conference.
