A two-man delegation of the Arab Supreme Committee of Palestine, which was suppressed last year by the British authorities for fomenting disorders but was reorganized outside Palestine, was en route for the United States today to raise funds among Arab communities for support of the Arab cause in the Holy Land. The delegates are Mohammed Jamil Beyhun, former deputy in the Lebanese Parliament, and Emile Crory, a Christian born in Palestine. They expect to spend from four to six months in the United States visiting various Arab groups throughout the country on behalf of the exiled ex-Mufti of Jerusalem.
