Jewish Population Calm Says Jewish Agency Urging Renewed Palestine Effort

Jews throughout the world must continue their efforts in behalf of Palestine with unabated energy, despite the incidents of the past few days, declares the Jewish Agency for Palestine, the body created to represent the Jewish people in dealings with Great Britain, the Palestine mandatory power, and the League of Nations.

“The regrettable events of the last few days when police clashed with Arab demonstrators at Jaffa and Haifa have not affected the Jews of entire Palestine,” the Jewish Agency points out in a message to the Jewish people issued through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

“The Jewish Agency is maintaining continuous contact with all centers of Jewish settlement on the one hand, and with the government on the other. The High Commissioner is watching for the public security. The Palestine Administration is confident of its ability to maintain order. The situation is still strained but the Jewish population is calm and is pursuing its daily work.

“Our efforts must continue with unabated energy,” the Agency’s message concludes.
