Hearing on Palestine Resolution Postponed; Bill on Restoration of Property Introduced

Hearings on the pending Palestine Resolution, which were to have been resumed tomorrow before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, will not be held, it was announced today by Rep. Sol Bloom, chairman of the committee.

Congressman Bloom explained that since the House would only be in session Thursday and then adjourn until next Monday, very few members of the committee could be expected to attend any meeting held this week. The resolution demands unrestricted Jewish immigration into Palestine and the eventual establishment of a Jewish State.

A concurrent resolution providing for the United States to include in all peace treaties at the end of the present war appropriate provisions “for the restoration of property or reimbursement by way of damages to any and all persons who have been deprived of their property” by Axis countries “under cover of law or otherwise” was introduced in the House today by Rep. Samuel Dickstein, N. Y. Dem.
