Physicians’ Group Protests Ticho Attack

Download PDF for this date

A delegation of Jewish physicians visited Sir John Chancellor, Palestine High Commissioner, concerning the stabbing by an unknown Arab assailant of Dr. Ticho, eminent oculist and friend of the Arabs. The Palestine High Commissioner expressed regrets at the occurrence and assured the delegation that all measures to apprehend the guilty would be taken.

Forty suspects have already been arrested, but the guilty ones could not be identified. Although two hundred pounds reward have been posted, many Jews believe that the police are not taking the necessary action in searching for the Arab criminal.
