Attempt to Establish Telephonic Communication Between London and Jerusalem Fails: Further Efforts Be

The efforts that have been made recently by the Post Office to enable a programme to be broadcasted to London from Jerusalem during the celebration of the seventh anniversary of the Hebrew University, and thence to New York have failed, the J.T.A. is informed. The Post Office has been unable to establish telephonic communication between Jerusalem and London in time for the event.

The Post Office authorities are engaged at the moment in setting up a radio-telephone line between London and Egypt, and as soon as this has been satisfactorily accomplished, the line will be extended to Palestine and Jerusalem. At the moment, however, it is impossible to give any definite date when this is likely to be completed.
