In order to commemorate the name of Edward Best, one of those killed in the riots, his Jewish friends arc asking subscriptions to inscribe his name in the Golden Book of the Jewish National Fund. Best, a member of the Palestine Immigration Department, one of the first to be killed in the riots, died in defense of the Jewish suburb of Givath Saul. His death occurred during the week he was to be married. He was a Catholic and known for his friendship to the Jews.
