Anti-census Agitation in Palestine: Twenty Jews Arrested Including Revisionist Leader.

Mr. Aba Akhi Mayer, the leader of the Revisionist youth in Palestine and a prominent journalist, was arrested at midnight with six others for erasing census notices.

In Tel Aviv thirteen Jews have been arrested for posting signs with inscriptions reading: “Down with the census”, “Down with the enumerators”.

An organisation calling itself the Anti-Census Youth Association, said to have behind it some of the Palestine Revisionist leaders, was reported last week (in the J.T.A. Bulletin of the 23rd. inst.) to be distributing handbills calling on the Jewish population to boycott the forthcoming Palestine census on the ground that it will lead to the establishment of a Legislative Assembly in Palestine.
