See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The alleged unfair treatment of Jews in the municipalities throughout Palestine was the subject of vigorous attacks at a great public meeting here last night.

The Central Government was strongly criticized for countenancing the discrimination against Jewish officials and others who come in contact with the municipalities.

In a resolution adopted, the government was called upon to fix the municipal elections at an early date, and a committee was named to wait upon the High Commissioner, Sir Herbert Samuel, to present these views to him. The committee consists of J. Ben Zvi, Rabbi Ostrowsky, Abram Elmaliah and S. Schwarts.
