As foreseen, the announcement of Great Britain’s willingness to give up the Iraq Mandate gave fresh impetus to the campaign for dropping the Palestine Mandate as well. A number of newspapers today carry comment in this sense.

The “Evening Standard” declares: “For many reasons the United States would be our most desirable successors. Although the United States refused the Armenian Mandate, it is by no means certain that America would adopt the same attitude towards the Palestine mandate. The control of the Holy Places would make a powerful appeal to religious sentiment in the U. S.”
