Download PDF for this date

The authorities announced today the arrest of 138 Arab terrorists in the Haifa-Acre district within the last 24 hours.

Terrorists last night pillaged the Greek Orthodox monastery atop the Mount of Temptation near Jericho.

An Arab messenger brought another letter today from the Rev. Gerould Goldner, 29-year-old American missionary, who is being held for $5,000 ransom by Arab brigands. The letter indicated that Mr. Goldner was well. Dr. Jacob Goldner, father of the preacher, has offered to pay the ransom and arrangements for his son’s release were expected to be completed tonight or tomorrow.
