Work on the building of the Jewish Agricultural School near Mesha, provided for in the will of the late Kadoorie, was interfered with by neighboring Arabs who attempted to prevent government engineers from starting the excavation for the foundation. The police intervened and the work is proceeding under guard. Several Arabs were arrested.
