The American Jewish Committee will ask a hearing before the Committee of Inquiry on Palestine to be set up by the United Nations, according to a resolution passed tonight by its executive committee, meeting at the Hotel Waldorf Astoria under the chairmanship of Jacob Blaustein.

The executive committee also went on record as favoring psychological studies and experimental work in the field of Jewish education. In a telegram to B’nai B’rith, sent to its triennial convention in the Hotel Statler, in Washington, the A.J.C. recorded its “profoundest sorrow” at the death of Henry Monsky.
