See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The lack of security in Palestine was lamented by Rabbi Kaniel, when he spoke at the funeral which took place in Haifa to-day of Samuel Guterman, the victim of the midnight shooting outrage at the Jewish colony of Kfar Hassidim.

Guterman, who leaves a widow, was only 28 years of age. He came to Palestine from Warsaw in 1926.

Representatives of the Jewish Community have interviewed the Superintendent of Police, who has expressed to them his belief that the murderers belong to an organised gang.
