MacKenzie Column The Grand Mufti Is on the Loose Again By DEW1TT MACKENZIE (Associated Press Foreign Affairs Analyst) Word that the powerful grand mufti of Jerusalem who is anti everything that is British or Jewish has evaded surveillance in France and again is at large somewhere among the Moslems of the Middle East, isn't calculated to ease the crisis which has arisen in Palestine over the fiery problem of Jewish immigration. Dangerous Man The highly educated grand mufti is a dangerous man to those against whom he conspires. For many years he has been leader of the Arab campaign for an independent Palestine and against the establishment of a Jewish national home as promised by the British. And it is an ironic circumstance that it was Sir Herbert Samuel, first British high commissioner of Palestine under the league of Nations mandate, who appointed him mufti. The 53-year-old Haj Amin El Husseini to give him his name not only is spiritual head of Palestine's some 1,000,000 Moslem Arabs but is political leader as well. Moreover his influence extends into Trans-Jordan, Iraq, Arabia, Egypt, Iran and Syria, for he is gifted with leadership, has a strong personality and is as crafty as a fox. Most of his life. Husseini has made war on the Jews of Palestine. Indeed in 1920, when his brother was grand mufti, he fled to Trans-Jordan after being sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for his part in anti-Jewish riots. Next year the brother died and Haj Amin was granted amnesty, after which High Commissioner Samuel appointed him grand mufti, it being the custom for this high office to remain In the same family. Banished in 1937 Finallv in 1937 the British ban ished the grand mufti from Palestine. He took refuge first in Syria, and then in Iran and finally in Italy, keeping just ahead of the British forces as they occupied the Middle East in 1941. Of course the grand mufti was welcomed by Mussolini with open arms, for both II Duce and Hitler were doing their utmost to inflame the Moslems of the Middle East against the Allies. He carried on his anti-British activities from Italy until he again was forced to flee, this time to France where ultimately he came under Allied control. Now the grand mufti is loose again and is reported to have gone by air to Syria, but his whereabouts is a mystery. It scarcely can be mere coincidence that the grand mufti has made this spectacular get-away as the moment nears when a decision must be made whether the Anglo-American Committee recommendation shall be carried out. June 20 is the time set for both Jews and Arabs to give formal reports of their reactions to the recommendation. I00F Leaders Study Problems Wllkes-Barre, Pa. -(;P)- National officials of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows huddled today with leaders of the Pennsylvania Grand Lodge sessions meeting here. Grand Patriarch of Grand Encampment John Pierce of Philadelphia and his entire staff met with Franklin B. Hosbach, Erie attorney and state grand master. IOOF activities for the coming year were under discussion. Approximately 600 delegates voiced approval yesterday of a proposal to convert two of the Odd Fellow's four orphanages maintained in the Keystone State into children's hospitals to treat cerebral palsey. An IOOF committee recommended that the homes in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh be converted into hospitals. The report was expected to be presented formally for passage at today's business sessions. The delegates authorized that children may enter orphanages maintained by the Odd Fellows if either the mother or father is dead. Previously, the rules provided for admittance of children only when the father was dead.

The 1945 annual report, just printed, gives some indication'of how well we met these objectives last year. General Electric's growth has come from new and better products for the public, continuously improved. Out of production efficiency have come higher wages, increased jobs, and the earnings needed to continue these gains. This year General Electric did not get off to as good a start as in 1945. But the objectives and aims of General Electric are the same and will continue to be the same to keep wages as high as possible, to keep prices down as far as possible, and to earn a fair profit.
