August 22, 1944
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Re-orientation of the status of Palestine may be expected as a consequence of the British-American-Russian security conference which opened today at Dumbarton Oaks, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today from a high authority.

It is predicted here that the entire mandate system of the League of Nations will be undone and replaced by a system of United Nations trusteeship, since it is generally felt that the result of the mandates has been unsatisfactory and that the system has proved itself all but unworkable.

It is expected that under the trusteeship of the United Nations, immigration into Palestine will be facilitated for Jews and the promise to establish a Jewish National Home in Palestine, contained in the Balfour Declaration but as yet unfulfilled, will be brought nearer to realization.
