Box of Oranges Sent from Israel to British Official X-rayed; Nothing Suspicious Found

An entire box of oranges sent from Israel to Foreign Under Secretary Christopher Mayhew were X-rayed one by one, the British press reported today.

The Under Secretary became suspicious when he found a piece of steel attached to one of the oranges. The examination revealed merely that the orange in question was overripe. Mayhew is reported to have received Sternists warnings previously.

Five men, including two Jewish councilors of the Borough of Stepney, were today arraigned in a London court on charges of willful obstruction of the police in connection with an anti-Mosley demonstration in the East End of London yesterday. The five defendants, including the councillors, Max Levitas and Morris Rosen, were remanded for a later trial when they requested legal representation.
