Download PDF for this date

Despite the Arab Supreme Committee’s proclamation of non-cooperation with the British Royal Commission, which arrives Wednesday to begin an investigation into recent disorders, it was reported today that Arab leaders are preparing material for submission to the commission.

Haboker, Hebrew daily, reports a numbers of Arabs will appear “privately” before the six-man body. It also declares that the Emir Abdullah’s son, Tatal, will testify during the commission’s projected visit to Transjordan. The Transjordan ruler is reported opposed to his son’s plan.
