Download PDF for this date

The son of Sir John Baggot Clubb (Glubb Pasha), the British general who organized the Jordan Arab Legion and commanded it in the 1948 war against Israel, has become the most shrill Arab propagandist on the Amman radio, according to a report published here in News of the World. Young Faris Glubb was hired as a free lance correspondent by Amman radio and graduated to political programs, the paper said, and has become “more Arab than the Arabs.”
