Committee of Inquiry on Palestine opened Its first official session here with an appeal for peace and /tranquility in the Holy Land during Its deliberations. The first meeting was held en camera at the YMCA hulkling where the open hearings will take place. The closed .session, It is believed was devoted to consideration of technical and procedural ntalters and to of¬ ficial acceptance of memoi-anda anti documents from the Pal¬ estine Government and other interested parties. The eleven members of the commission appeare<l grave as. they arrived at the YMCA building. The first official act of the committee's chali'man, Chief Justice Emll Sandstroem of Sweden, was an announcement that the probers had come to Palestine with an "open mind" on the ultimate solution of the Issue before them. ¦ The cornmltlee members are expected to make a tour of the country with a view to securing background material for their study, and the deliberations may not be resumed before the end of the week.

Dr, Chaim Weizmann, who was invited to testify before the commission by the Jewish Na' tional Council, is expected to give his views at a closed hear¬ ing. The veteran Zionist will limit himself, it is understood, to giving only his personal views.

Give, Work For SOS The following urgent appeal Is this week being made to Co¬ lumbus JewLsh Community by the local SOS committee: "Next Tuesday, June 24, the SOS will pack cartons of good, used clothing to send to desper¬ ate, weary, waiting Jews in Europe, Selfl.shly, you must help them. In the salvation of these saddened people lies our hope for the future peace of the world. If unrest and misery remain in EUrope, what can re¬ sult but chaos? Unselfishly, you must help them. How gratifying it is that the power to give happiness lies with us. An old dress, too short, too often worn can 'be a prized possession to a homeless- DP, How many hundretls of little babies are dirty and unkempt ami miserably uncomfortable for want of a gown; a shirt, a rompei"? Each one of us has something unused to give. The giving is so ea.sy. What you don't want, someone else is crying for. Please, take nnytlilng you can give to the Bryden Road Tem¬ ple by Monday, June 23. if you would like to help pack call.Mi's. Stanley Schwartz, EV 3534.,,there is no measure of how much your help will appreciated." "It is interesting to note that Ihe first three week.s of this year's drive has been marked hy persistent effort' on the part of several hundred workers, A.s to results we can .say that many have .set a new high mark for contributions. Many have understood that the greatest need of all time demands noth¬ ing less than sacrificial giving. Still large numbers have not as yet been reached. The final test is at hand", concluded Roth. According to Abe A, Wolman, Campaign Organization Chair¬ man, during the next few weeks every man, woman and child in the Jewish community will be given an opportunity to contrib¬ ute to the United Jewitih. |^d. Based on last year's anti pr'ev- lous drives, Mr. Wolman said, the campaign this year Is mak¬ ing substantial progress. He pointed out that there are hun¬ dreds of good givers who are prepared to do tiieir part if the , Workers will see them. He called upon all volunteer Work¬ ers to proceed with their efforts and to bring the drive nearer the goal, and urged them to cover their prospects as soon as possible.
