New Palestine High Commissioner Receives Jewish Agency and Arab Executive Deputations: Only Informal

General Sir Arthur Wauchope, the High Commissioner for Palestine, received to-day Dr. Arlosoroff, Dr. Berkson, Dr. Maurice B. Hexter, and Dr. Werner Senator, members of the Palestine Jewish Agency Executive. The interview was purely informal, and a preliminary to real conversations. Dr. Arlosoroff, the head of the Palestine Jewish Agency Executive, will have a business talk shortly with the High Commissioner.

The High Commissioner also had a meeting to-day with a delegation of the Palestine Arab Executive, consisting of the President, Moussa Kazim Pasha, Auni Bey Abdul Hadi, Jemal Husseini, Yakoub Faraj, and Moghanan Effendi. This meeting, too, was informal, but the Arab delegation requested that minutes of the conversation should be kept, and a statement based on the minutes will be issued during the course of the week.
