King George Invites Jewish and Arab Leaders to Coronation

King George V, through Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, British High Commissioner for Palestine, has invited both an Arab and a Jewish leader to attend his coronation as Palestine representatives, an official communique said.

The Jewish leader is Isaac Ben Zvi, president of the Jewish National Council. The Arab is Amin Bey Abdul Hadi, regarded as moderate in his attitude toward Zionists. His acceptance was severely criticized in Arab newspapers.
