Weingartner, Swiss Conductor, to Lead Palestine Orchestra on Egyptian Tour

Felix Weingartner, noted Swiss conductor, arrived here by airplane yesterday to conduct the Palestine Symphony Orchestra on its second Egyptian tour of the season. He immediately went into rehearsal with the orchestra.

The five scheduled concerts, three in Cairo and two in Alexandria, have been sold out for ten days. Weingartner was due from Palestine Tuesday, but his plane was forced back to Lydda by a violent sand storm after nearing Port Said.
