The failure of Sir John Hope Simpson to secure the High Commissionership of Danzig, in succession to the late High Commissioner, Gravina, is due to his unpopularity with the Jews, tonight’s “Evening Standard” reports.
The paper states that Sir John’s report on Palestine, as special investigator for the British government, has antagonized the Jewish world. Since there are more Jews in Poland than in any other country at present, Sir John Simpson’s appointment failed to materialize.
Sir John will return to China to continue his relief work.
