Arab Leaders Confer with Emir Abdullah at Amman

Download PDF for this date

The Arab Supreme Committee left today for an overnight stay at Amman, where its members will confer with Emir Abdullah, Arab ruler of Transjordan, who has been serving as intermediary between Palestine Arab leaders and the Government in negotiating for cessation of the fifteen-week-old disorders.

Arab employes of municipalities throughout Palestine will submit tomorrow a memorandum to High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope asking temporary suspension of Jewish immigration as the only means to end current disturbances. The memorandum cites previous instances of suspension in 1921 and 1929.
