David Ben Gurion chairman of the Jewish Agency’s Jerusalem Executive, arrived here Friday on the British liner Scythia en route to Palestine via the Far East. He will remain in the United States for a few weeks. In an interview, Ben Gurion predicted that the center of war would soon move to the Near East and asserted that Palestine’s survival depended on the immediate organization of a Jewish army.
