The British Government’s reported decision to mintain the White Paper with relatively minor modifications is only temporary, the political correspondent of the influential Labor daily Davar says today.

Declaring that he has been informed that the Government plans to change its policy in about six months, after pressing international problems have been solved, the cerrespondent says that at that time a round-table conference of Jews and Arabs will be convoked in London where a final decision will be reached.

It is understood, he continues, that the Palestine Government has sounded out the Arabs as to their willingness to participate in such a conference and has received a favorable reply, since the Arabs are reported to believe that they will win their derands at a round-table meeting. However, he warns that in the meantime, the tension bere is more acute daily.

A report reaching here from Caire today says that an unnamed American official who recently saw King Ibn Saud was warned by the Arabian monerch that he would take violent action against the Jews and any members of the United Nations supporting them, if large scale Jewish immigration into Palestine is allowed. At the same time, Abdul Azzam Bey, secretary-general of the Arab League, declared in Alexandria, following a tour of most of the Arab countries, that the leaders of all those nations agree that Palestine must remain an Arab country.
