Greetings for Socialist leaders in America and Europe were received on the formation here of the Socialist Pro-Palestine Committee. Among those who sent messages were Abraham Cahan, Abraham Shipliakoff, and Joseph Shlossberg of New York, Lt. Com. Ken-worthy and Richard Henry Tawney of England.

Lord Olivier, in reporting for the Colonial Commission of the International, said that Palestine was not included in the colonial resolution because it is not considered a colonial territory. The status of Palestine as a mandatory territory is quite peculiar. The mandate gives sufficient guarantees to the population, he stated.
