American Military Police Raid Hashomer Hazair in Search for Anti-british Posters

American military police and Counter-Intelligence Corps agents last night raided the local offices of the Hashomer Hazair in an attempt to apprehend the persons who recently placed anti-British posters on military headquarters here.

No incriminating evidence was found on the raided premises and no arrests were made. One military official said the raid was the result of a “bum steer.” Meanwhile, the search for the authors of the leaflets still continues, especially for agents of the Irgun Zvai Leumi, whose name was affixed to one poster.

In a step towards bettering relations between troops and displaced Jews, basketball and volleyball teams from the Landsberg DP camp and the Landsberg Air Base played before a large mixed crowd here last night. The soldiers won both contests.
