One of the most brilliant State functions given in Palestine in recent years took place in the Government House last night when British pilgrims, Knights of the Order of St. John, were officially entertained by the Palestine High Commissioner.

The initiation of new members into the Order of St. John took place in the Government House with medieval pomp. Several new members were initiated, including Lady Storrs, w### of Governor Ronald Storrs. The British pilgrims proceeded to Haifa today.
