A considerable portion of the reserve funds of the Palestine government must be spent for more effective policing of the costal areas and land frontiers of Palestine to prevent illegal Jewish emigrants from entering. Near East and India, influential British magazine, declared today.

The magazine warned that serious trouble may be expected in Palestine if the government does not take more active steps against the volunteer Arab patrols, organized by Arab zealots to prevent Jewish immigrants from illegally landing.

Many Arabs have entered the country illegally as a result of the prosperity there, Near East and India said.
