Palestine Mandate Will Be Re-examined; International “trusteeship” is Expected

Under-Secretary of State Edward R. Stettinius Jr. today told the press that the question of mandates is among the unfinished business left over from Dumbarton Oaks.

He thus indicated that Britain’s mandate over Palestine and other mandates will be re-examined by the proposed international body. According to informed Washington sources, a system of “trusteeship” under which several nations would share the responsibility for the dependent country is among the plans under consideration.
