Paper Discredits Abdullah ‘plan’

Palestine press reports that the Emir Abdullah of Transjordania, now en route to England, may bring up the question of extending his jurisdiction by dividing the Holy Land into cantons, which would be distributed among Jews and Arabs, is discredited by the Doar Hayom, Hebrew daily, today.

The paper declares that such a hope on the part of the Emir let alone reports of his plans, are impossible.

The Arab newspaper press simultaneously came out today with an open question which is directed to the government of Palestine, asking whether it is true that Palestine is to be divided into cantons.
