ist labor and Revisionist groups, as a result of the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff in Tel Aviv last week, have resulted in several misunderstandings at Tel Aviv, Petach-Tikvah and Bnay-Brak, between the groups. The Revisionists complain that the Laborites are interfering with the Revisionists and preventing them from going on with their work. They have sent a letter to the Histadruth, Zionist labor federation, to this effect, it was learned.

The Palestine members of the Actions Committee of the World Zionist Organization met here to consider the question of a successor to Dr. Arlosoroff as head of the political department of the Jewish Agency for Palestine. It was learned that Professor Selig Brodetsky, noted British Zionist leader, would not be able to proceed to Palestine to fiill the post in view of the forthcoming World Zionist Congress. Similarly, it was learned, Emanuel Neumann, American member of the Jewish Agency Executive, would also be unable to do so.

The police investigation into the Arlosoroff murder is continuing quietly, the police making little or no information concerning it public. Mrs. Arlosoroff was taken to the Jerusalem General Hospital last night to view the body of a young Jew who was found dead yesterday about five kilometers from Kiryat-Anavim, but was unable to identify him as one of the two assailants of her husband.

Representatives of the Jewish Agency and of the Vaad Leumi (Jewish National Council) were also brought to the hospital in an unsuccessful attempt to identify the body. The dead man is believed to have some indirect connection with the Arslosoroff assassination, however.

The police have also been informed that on the morning of the Arlosoroff funeral, Stavsky sat on the balcony of a house on Allenby Street, in Tel Aviv, taking photographs of the funeral procession.
