3-Year Arab Revolt Put Down
JERUSALEM, Jan. 16 (UP)—
Great Britain’s military experts
today believe their armed forceB
have broken the back of the Arab
Nationalist revolt in Palestine in
a struggle estimated to have cost
2.000 dead and 3,000 wounded.
Since early last summer a mech-
anized British army of 20,000
troops, barked by wav planes and
6.000 armed police, has fought a
guerilla war against well organ-
ized Arab rebels who had flung
down the most serious challenge j representatives
to Britain’s authority in the Holy
land in the past 20 years.
For a time the A;rabs were vir-

Holy Land, including Bethlehem
lowlands into the barren hill
country, where they were pursued
by mechanized columns and bomb-

Today, with the Arab revolt
seemingly on the wane and inter-
nal dissensions splitting the ranks
of the Arab nationalists them-
selves, Palestine anxiously awaits

Davis draws on the 30-year-old
constitution of the hobo organiza-

tween a hobo, tramp and bum.
Set forth in the preamble of the
constitution is the declaration:
“There is a vast difference be-
tween hobo, tramp and bum, for
a hobo will work, a tramp won’t

to. A Hobo believes the world
owes him an opportunity, while a
tramp thinks the world owes him
a living and the bum just exists.”
