Arab Parties Cool to Strike Proposal

Arab parties, even the extremists, announced opposition today to the proposal of the Arab youth organization to hold a one-day general strike on Nov. 13, the day Palestine High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope arrives here from London.

Only the Falastin, Arab daily, suggested a strike, to last one hour.

Sir Arthur was supervising from London the international search for those responsible for an attempt to smuggle arms into Palestine.
