The general condition of Palestine is tranquil and the better class of Arabs seem to want to get along amicably with the Jews as they had done for centuries in the past, said Jonah J. Goldstein, New York Lawyer, on his return from Palestine Tuesday where he had been for two months making arrangements for the distribution of the $2,000,000 emergency fund raised by the Palestine Emergency Fund.

“The recent rioting in Jerusalem has not broken the spirit of the Jews,” said Mr. Godstein to a representative of the Jewish Daily Bulletin.

Mr. Godstein, who was met at the pier as the “Majestic” docked, by Felix Warburg and Louis Lipsky, has appointed local committees in the central towns of Palestine to handle the distribution of the fund. A report of his activities will be given to Mr. Warburg.
