A grand scale debate on the problem is underway in the House of Commons. And in Palestine itself, a mass exodus of British subjects is underway. An official decree has ordered all British women and children, and British civilians holdinp; nonessential jobs, to clear out of the Holy Land by February 4th. The reason given? "So they will not hamper military operations in the Holy Land." If some civilians remain behind, the order warns that their movements will be controlled. This has led some observers to believe that the order marks the first step in .settiMfr up martial law in Palestine. The new crisis in the Holy! Land has touched off the sti»j?ing dc'.bate in Commons led by ' opposition Ic.idcr Winston Churchill. " He charged' that Oic Jewish underground in the Holy Land has cowed the British government. And with typically Churti)rillian oratory, he admonished the cabinet to "at -least bear yourselves like men." Enabling- Legislation To Be Filed Next Week By Rep. Joseph V.
