A round of festivities for the Swedish Crown Prince, Gustaf Adolf, who is now in Palestine with his family, culminated today in a visit to the Jewish colony Nahal, where the party was received by Palestinian Jewish leaders and the population of the settlement.

Last night the Crown Prince and his entourage were guests of the Habimah at a gala performance of David Pinski’s “Eternal Jew.” The party was accompanied by High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope and ranking British officials in the country. The theatre was decorated with the Jewish, British and Swedish flags and all three anthems were played at the opening.

Dr. Arthur Ruppin, Chancellor Judah L. Magnes of the Hebrew University and Moshe Shertok were guests of the High Commissioner at an official dinner for the visiting royalty.

High Commissioner Wauchope donated $500 for the building fund of the children’s village Ma# Shefeia.
