Tel Aviv Police Disperse Demonstration of Refugees Asking Food

Police today dispersed a demonstration of more than a thousand Jewish refugees of the Arab disorders demanding food.

The authorities, in protest against the Government’s alleged failure to provide adequate relief, had withdrawn its aid to the refugees, which had been extended since April 19 when the disorders broke out in Jaffa.

An emergency meeting of the Refugees Committee of the Jewish Agency for Palestine was convoked to solve the problem confronting Tel Aviv, where the majority of the refugees have been quartered.
