A petition to ban the showing of moving pictures to Arab women in Palestine was submitted today to the Assistant District Commissioner in Nablus.

The petition points out that this entertainment is contrary to Moslem law and is having a demoralizing effect on the women. The petition also asks prohobition of the sale of intoxicating drinks in hotels.
