Most of the hearings of the Anglo-American Inquiry Committee on Palestine will be open, it was announced here today by Leslie Rood, secretary of the committee.

“No limit has been set on the length of the hearings, since there is no intent to mizzle people,” he declared. British members of the committee are arriving in New York on the Queen Mary tomorrow and will immediately come to Washington to prepare for the hearings which are to open on Jan. 7.

Inquiries are being drafted by the inquiry committee for submission to the American republics and the Canada regarding their policies on admission and settlement of refugees and displaced persons, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns. George Warren, State Department advisor on refugee problems, is working with the commission on this project.
