All precautions have been taken, and I hope there will be no disturbance of the peace, although there is much excitement, the Palestine Police Commandant, Mr. Spicer, declared to the J.T.A. here to-day, pointing out at the same time that he was feeling very anxious because the main procession of the Moslem Nebi Musa Festival will this year coincide with Passover.

I am having now the hardest days since I assumed office here, the Police Commandant added.
