Invitation to Arab Mayor of Jerusalem to Attend Hebrew University Ceremony May Cause Disturbance Rev

A protest against the action of the Hebrew University in inviting Mr. Ragheb Bey Nashashibi, the Mayor of Jerusalem, to attend the first graduation ceremony of the Faculty of Humanities to-morrow (Monday) has been published by the Revisionist students at the University, who complain that extending an invitation to Mr. Nashashibi, who, after the 1929 outbreak, went to London as a member of the Arab delegation and stood out against the Jewish interests, shows a lack of national self-respect.

It is feared that there may in consequence be some obstruction at the ceremony. The High Commissioner, Sir Arthur Wauchope, is also to be present at the function.
