Download PDF for this date

Charles Barde, the Swiss jurist who is a member of the international Wailing Wall Commission which recently concluded its labors in investigating Moslem and Jewish claims to the Wailing Wall, on his return here today, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the report of the Wailing Wall Commission would be ready by the end of October and submitted to the British government then.

Explaining that the Commission has voluminous material to study, the minutes of the various meetings filling a thousand typewritten pages, M. Barde said that the first consultation of the commissioners would be held during September either at Geneva or Stockholm.
