4 Jews Slain As Terrorism Continues in Palestine

Three Jews were slain today in continuing Arab terrorism that belied reports that the exiled ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, seeking to create a favorable atmosphere for the forthcoming conferences on Palestine in London, had ordered cessation of hostilities. Two Jewish watchmen, Zvi Friedman and Salman Rosenbaum, both immigrants from Poland, were found killed in the Ben Shemen forest. The third victim was Shlomo Madmony, 40, a Palestine native, who was fatally wounded this morning while delivering milk in the Yemen Moshe quarter of Jerusalem. A Jewish watchman, Jacob Cohen, was killed yesterday when a group of watchmen were attacked near the Kfar Giladi colony.
