Palestine Curfew Damps Social Life

Download PDF for this date

The social life of this city has been suffering of late on account of the rigid police enforcement of the curfew law. Between six P.M. and five A.M. no persons are permitted on the streets.

As a result, the frolicsome night life of the populace, boulevard conversations, and beach parties, which regularly are the life-blood of Tel Aviv’s joie de vivre, have almost ceased. Violators of the curfew have been fined fifty cents and a dollar.

One housewife reported that during the long siege indoors she has been able to mend all her husband’s socks, her own hosiery, had read two dreary novels and other volumes.
