Senator Says Negro Leaders May Be Keeping Own People from Educations which debated only two hours behind closed doors before nna'ni- mously approving Egypt's intervention with other Arab states in Palestine. An offiial source said Parliament would meet again today to discuss a proclamation of martial to cover Egyptian Army moves military secrecy, To Play Vital Role Egypt, under Farouk's rule, is expected to play a vital role In | Palestine after Britain lays down her mandate at midnight tomorrow. It is safe to say that most leading Egyptians share Farouk's views. Here are the six questions submitted and the answers given for Farouk by the royal press adviser: Q. Would his majesty care to define briefly what will be Egypt's attitude towards Palestine when Britain lays down her mandate on May 15? A. His majesty's government al- i ready has made it clear on divers I occasions that Egypt iuteud al! the help that lies at her command j to our brother Arabs in Palestine. | Q. Would It be possible for his | majesty to enter detail as lo what this help will consist of? | A. His majesty has said on more j than one occasion that it will be of military, financial and econo-1 mic nature and that no effort, will be spared in these directions, j Q. As his majesty is monarch of a country which has a very large Jewish population, could you let have any Indication of his \ Keral attitude towards Jews and i zTonlsUs? I A. His majesty Is pleased to see that you have made a distinction | between Jews and Zionists. Egypt- j lans have no quarrel with the Jews, a Majority of ihe Jews who have lived long in Egypt have proved to be loyal citizens. Zionism is quite another thing. His majesty cannot and will not tolerate a Zionist state In the MidEast close to Egypt's boarders. Force Nccessary Q. Does his majesty have any suggestion or ideas as to what would be the best way to settle the strife now raging between Arabs and Jews in Palestine? A. It is a general belief that force will be necessary to deal with the Zionist. This Is the only method they understand. However, it may be hoped that eventually— and perhaps at a not too distrv't date—wiser counsels may prevail among the Jews and they will realize their mistake in estranging all the Arab nations, which hitherto have not been hostile to the Jews as a whole. Q. Can I take it that the rights of minorities—in this case Jews— would probably be safeguarded In an Arab state of Palestine? A. Most definitely so. It has been stated time and again that the Arabs In Palestine would give the proper minority rights to Jews tejing in Palestine. His majesty f^ls that you most certainly are aware that Arab nations are we] known for their traditional hospitality and broadness of mind. Q. May I ask you whether his majesty has a message to the Arabs in Palestine. A.His majesty's mesage to them Is "be of good cheer, for justice is on our side and Allah will sec tha no wrong Is done unto us." South Second St., Blythevillc, Ark.
