Facilitate Jewish Immigration into Palestine Without Infringing Rights of Arab Population Says Leagu

Essentially the humanitarian experiment of Mandates has been crowned with indisputable success, says the Report on Mandates submitted by M. Lange, the Norwegian Representative, who is Rapporteur on Mandates to the League of Nations Assembly, and adopted to-day by the Sixth Committee for presentation to the Assembly in plenary session.

The Sixth Committee (the Mandates Section of the Assembly) has again manifested the importance it attaches to the settlement of the Palestine controversies, the report proceeds. The Committee, it continues, has noted that there has been no disturbance of public order in Palestine sine 1929, and it has associated itself with the hope expressed by the Permanent Mandates Commission and by the Council of the League of Nations that the efforts which are being made by the Mandatory Power to facilitate Jewish immigration without infringing the rights of the Arab population will be crowned with success.
