–A fresh labor dispute broke out here yesterday as a result of the dissatisfaction of the Histadruth, Palestine Labor Federation, when work on a building was awarded to the Revisionist labor group, thus breaking the agreement made last September. The agreement provided that all work be distributed through the Histadruth labor exchange.

Members of the Histadruth picketed the building and refused to disperse when ordered to do so by police. Fourteen laborite leaders were arrested. The revisionist laborers continue to work under police protection.
