Palestine Telegrams in Hebrew Urged in Petition

A petition was submitted yesterday to the High Commissioner for Palestine, Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, requesting the use of Hebrew letters in telegrams sent by individuals and organizations accustomed to use Hebrew as their vernacular tongue.

The petition was arranged by Israel Amikam, an old fighter in the cause of Hebrew, and was signed by all the important figures in the Jewish community in Palestine, including Jewish institutions, rabbinical officers, municipal councils, banks, schools, professional associations, trade unions, synagogues, cooperatives, political parties, writers, rabbis and youth organizations.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns that the Jewish Agency and the Vaad Leumi (Jewish National Council) are submitting a memorandum Sunday in support of the petition.
