Four hundred people attended a protest meeting against British policy in Palestine, held last night at the New Kensington Jewish Club. Among the speakers were Congressman Adam Wyant, Isaac Carmel of Cleveland, Rabbi Henry Goldberger of Beth Jacob Congregation and Mayor Burns. A resolution protesting against the White Paper was unanimously passed at the meeting, over which Dr. A. Levendorf, president of the Zionist District, presided.

In issuing the White Paper on Palestine Britain has yielded to criminality and murder, declared Morris Rothenberg, American Zionist leader, in an address before the Menorah Society of New York University yesterday. The British government would not have dreamt of issuing the present restrictions except for the Arab atrocities last August, said Mr. Rothenberg.
