Download PDF for this date

The Government today announced that the entire First Division will be sent to Palestine to quell the Arab disorders which are now in their twenty-first week with no sign of abatement.

Supreme military control in Palestine is placed in the hands of Lieutenant Gen. J.G. Dill, who is expected to leave for the Holy Land on Friday by plane.

A long explanatory statement accompanying the announcement deplores the continued disorders and voices regret at the drastic character of the step.
