WKDNKSDAY, APRIL 14, 1<M8 British Moving Out of Palestine 100-Vehicle Convoy Leaves Jerusalem For Port of Haifa JERUSALEM. April 14. (UP) —' A Brillsh convoy of 100 vehicles left loday for the embarkation porl of Haifa, draining off more of Britain's fast-dwindling means of enforcing Inw and order in this war- threatened city. _ Twenty-five' cars of civilians 35 Iruckloads of baggage and furniture and 40 cars of military personnel and equipment set out for Haifa with an army escort. Many Americans decided to wait out the situation in tlie face of multiplying signs that all-out hostilities between the Jews and Arabs would break out as soon as all the British were gone—and thai would not be long. The British piled inlo cars drawn up in a double line along the Julian Way in front of the King David Hotel. British soldiers were stationed on ihe approaches to (he assembly area. The civilian cars were loaded mostly with wives and (ARK.) COURIER' NEWS Revolt-In Colombia children of government workers. One car carried five children. British sources said Ihe Arabs refused to guarantee safe passage for any convoy carrying Jews, regardless of their nationality. A number of spike-helmeted Arab Legionnaires with rifles patrolcd the security zone during the loading. In the early hours, eruptions of violcncejn Palestine were "on a relatively small scale. A bomb exploded in the Monte- liore Quarter of Jerusalem, sending up billovs of smoke. Jews on a nearby hill opened a barrage. The blast wrecked an unoccupied school and another unoccupied Imildinj. No casualties were reported. In Tiberius in North Palestine, Haganah squads b.'eiv up headquarters of the JS'ajada branch of the s about m f,ont .,,„, of ^ ou ;r^^^ Arao anncci forces. The British Army ordered an indefinite curlew on the area Sporadic gunfire and sniping went on lor several hours in Haifa, but details were, lacking. An official report said 34 Jews rtiid 10 Arabs were killed, and 38 Jews were wounded yesterday ,11 the convoy battle in the Sheik "Jar- rlh area of Jerusalem. Two British soldiers were killed and two wounded. Among the Jews wns Dr. Haini Yassky, director of Hadassah Hospital. Yassky, leading a convoy of 10 vehicle.;, was shot three times but his wife.
