American Owner of Doar Hayom Asks U.S. Aid in Suspension

Download PDF for this date

Secretary of State Stimson today received a letter from Jonah J. Goldstein, New York attorney, protesting, on behalf of Solomon White of Long Island City, against the action of the Palestine government in suspending Mr. White’s newspaper, the Doar Hayom, which is published in Jerusalem.

Pointing out that the American government is a party to the agreement giving Britain the Mandate over Palestine, Mr. Goldstein, in his letter asks the intervention of the American government to the end that the ban should be lifted.

The Doar Hayom, Mr. Goldstein writes, was suspended because it took exception to the much-criticized Pass-field White Paper. Mr. White, the publisher of the Doar Hayom, who is now in this country, is expected to come to Washington shortly to take up the matter of his paper’s suspension with the State Department.
