Mrs. .Meiisnn appealed lo both the Uniied .\'atii>ii.9-,iiiKl Ihe Arab states to eoojM'i'ate in .-^eruring a shorter transitimi period.

She paid high tribute to the efficiency tind "deep insight" t)f the Commiltei', ex|)res.^ing re- grei. that ils rep<irt had not l»een unanimous. Mrs. ,\Ieir.son .said thai she was jjnrtieuiarly sorry thai the Yugoslav ilelegiition hati supported the minority federa¬ tion plan, -whith, she claimed, would mean an .Arab state with a Jewish minority. She expresseil the hope that tbe Yugusiav Gov¬ ernment would .support the ma- Joriiy plan al the General As¬ sembly. Mrs. Meirson also voiced regret that UNSCOP bad slated that a solution of the Palestine problem would not mean solu¬ tion f)f the Jewish problem. iljelrson Says Report Confirms That Pnl-lillon Is Only Solution The Agency political spokes¬ man commented that the recom- niendalons of thie Peel Commls¬ .sion ten years ago In favor Of parlillon and UMSCOP's report Indicated that there was no oth¬ er solution of the Palestine prob¬ lem. She voiced regret that the Commlllee had failed to include .lei'usaiem in the Jewish state, polntng out that the Peel Com¬ mission had envisaged interna¬ tional or Mrilish control of only ihe old city of Jerusalem. Mrs. Meirson termed a "sorrow¬ ful oinmission" the Inclusion in the Aral) stale of Western Gali¬ lee, since it has a \'ciy sm,'ill .'\ral> j)oi)ulalion and mak(\s little miinerical difference to eiliier the Arab or the .lewish state. A.ssigriing this area to the Aralis would rlcny the .lews a common Iftjoiier with Christian I.eban- wiih wiiom we have always maintained good neighborly re¬ lations and which seemingly has neighborly feelings toward.s the .lews." slie added. However, Mrs. Meirson eon- rluded, it is hoped thai the Gen¬ era! A.s.sembly "will rectify these wrongs," The UNSCOP recommenda¬ tions were greeted with great satisfaction by the Yishuv, par¬ ticularly the decision to admit 150,000 Immigrants in the next two years. It is felt that imple¬ mentation of this recommenda-- tion would hamper extremist activitie.s. The Arab masses have been quiet, although theli' lead¬ ers have issued bitter statements attacking the report.
