The Arab Executive has called another strike for Wednesday in protest against the arrest on the occasion of the last strike demonstration of some of the more disorderly.

The Arabs demand the discharge of the Jerusalem chief of police for permitting the arrests and also the release of the imprisoned agitators.

The former strike which resulted in police interference was called by the Arabs to celebrate their boycott of the elections.
