Thirty-eight students were arrested here today when a group demonstrated in the streets, shouting “Palestine for the Arabs,” following a meeting of the Moslem Youth Association.

Two senators spoke in the upper house against Jewish business houses. The latter were criticized for increasing Egyptian unemployment by hiring only Jews and for boycotting the Arab language.
