Arab Assaults on Jews Continue in Jerusalem; 3 Killed, 50 Wounded

Three were killed and fifty wounded, mostly Jews, today when 100 Arabic villagers armed with swords flocked into Jerusalem and attacked the Jewish quarters, a despatch of the United Press from Tel Aviv states.

British police patrolled the streets with rifles and armored cars. The authorities summoned airplanes to cope with the situation. All entrances to Jerusalem were closed.

British mandate authorities here were understood to be preparing to bring troops from Egypt if the situation warranted it.
