That the Governments of France and England are not opposed to a union of Syria and Trans ###dania is the claim made by a number of Syrian papers, as ###rting they have good ground for the claim. The union referred to is a sort of Arab Federation under Emir Abdullah, the Trans-Jordanian ruler, and would incl### Palestine. Persons adhering to this view find corroboration in the approaching interview between Emir Abdullah and General De La Motte, the French military commander of Syria.
