Italian Broadcast Reports Wauchope Negotiating with Arabs

The Italian radio station at Bari, in one of its Arabic news broadcasts, reported today that Palestine High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, in a last effort to pacify the Arabs before his retirement, in order to facilitate the work of the new Palestine Commission, had visited Syria incognito and consulted with the exiled ex-Mufti of Jerusalem regarding release of Arab leaders interned on the Seychelles Islands and others held elsewhere.
