Ceremony in Brussels Marks Establishment of Palestine Colony Bearing Name of Huysmans

The establishment in Palestine of a colony bearing the name of Camille Huysmans, Belgian Socialist leader and present Minister of Education, was marked here yesterday at a ceremony attended by M. Huysmans and prominent Jewish leaders.

The veteran statesman said that he hoped next year to visit the colony, which was located on Mount Carmel. He expressed the opinion that if Britain and America agree on a reasonable compromise of the Palestine problem, disorders there will cease.

The Council of Jewish Communities here has cabled Secretary of State Marshall, urging that the U.S. take the lead in supporting the UNSCOP majority report and assume some responsibility for its implementation. The Council also cabled Dr. Stephen S. Wise, asking him to intervenene with President Truman.
