Truman Reported Seeking Aid of Pope to Secure Arab-jewish Truce in Palestine

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Myron C. Taylor, President Truman’s personal representative to the Vatican, who is now en route to Rome, may be carrying with him a letter from the President to Pope Pius XII in connection with Truman’s appeal for an Arab-Jewish truce in Palestine, it was indicated here today.

Asked for confirmation of this report, Charles G, Ross, secretary to the President, said that Ambassador Taylor may have such a letter, but he did not know, and could not say, whether there is any connection between Taylor’s going to Rome and the appeal for a truce in Palestine.
