New York (Jul. 8)
The disclosure that an expert of the War Department assisted the Arab delegates during their stay at San Francisco is revealed in the Al-Hoda, an Arab daily newspaper published here.
Reporting that the Iraq delegation maintained a special propaganda office at San Francisco, the paper says that this office was headed by Prof. Darwish Al-Heidari, general secretary of the Iraq delegation. “Also in the office were Professor Faris Maloof, head of the Institute for Arab-American Affairs, assisted by Prof. George Barakat, on special leave from the U.S. War Department,” the paper says. It credits the Iraq Minister in Washington with making this arrangement.
