GUARANTEE OF GOOD POLITICAL JOBS FOR ALL ARAB LEADERS WOULD WIN ARAB ACCEPTANCE OF THE BRITISH DECISION TO TRIPARTITION PALESTINE, IT IS ASSERTED TODAY BY JOSEPH M. LEVY, NEW YORK TIMES CORRESPONDENT, IN A DISPATCH FROM JERUSALEM.

“THE ARAB REACTION TO THE (ROYAL) COMMISSION’S PROPOSALS,” HE WRITES, “MAY BE SUMMED UP AS FOLLOWS: IF ALL THE ARAB LEADERS COULD BE GUARANTEED IMPORTANT POLITICAL JOBS IN THE NEW ARAB STATE THEY WOULD ACCEPT THE PARTITION SCHEME WITHOUT THE SLIGHTEST HESITATION.”
