Caliphate Claimed by Egyptians for King Fuad

A movement has been started in Egypt to proclaim King Fuad Caliph in opposition to King Hussein, because the Egyptian Moslems believe that their ruler also has a claim to the Caliphate. This movement is a great setback to the emissaries of King Hussein who are here trying to win support for him.
