King Hussein of Hedjas, departed from the home of his son, the Emir Abdullah, at Shuna in Transjordania, today. He is proceeding to Amman, whence he will leave for Hecca next week. Hussein is believed have concluded his unsuccessful conference with Arab notables who had gathered to discuss with him the projected Anglo-Hedjas treaty and the proposed Pan-Arabic Confederation.

King Hussein on Friday received the members of the Palestine Arab Executive, who left Shuna disappointed when Hussein would give no promise that he would not sign the proposed treaty with Great Britain if their demands for nationalization of the Palestine Government were not fulfilled.
