Jewish Newspapermen Boycott Government Reception

All Hebrew newspapers and correspondents of foreign Jewish newspapers and agencies, after consulting Jewish officials, have decided not to attend a tea given by the Government press officer to meet James S. McPherson, new Chief Secretary of the Palestine Government, as a protest against Britain’s new Palestine policy. The editors of the local Hebre newspapers decided to decline the invitations and the Jewish foreign correspondents followed suit.
