Two Arabs and one Jew escaped today from the Central prison in Jerusalef. Guards fired at them but missed and the prisoners made their get-away.

Itschak Kupetz, the escaped Jew, came to Palestine from Poland and was sentenced to three years in prison for allegedly entering the country illegally.

An intensive search for the escaped convicts has been instituted by the police throughout the country.
