Palestine Partition ARABS' FIRM STAND Britain Foresees Dangers CONSISTENCY STATED Lake Success, February 7. Arabs would resist any international military units sent to enforce the par tition of Palestine into separate States for Jews and Arabs. Stating this in a Note to the United Nations the Arab Higher Committee said that Arabs would never recognise the validity of the partition plan or the authority of the United Nations to en force it. The only way to establish partition is first to wipe out every Arab, man, woman and child, says the Note. Meanwhile replying to charges that Britain was obstructing the partition plan a spokesman for the British dele gation said that United Nations mem bers were awakening to the dangers of splitting Palestine. Britain had been consistent in her stand and had tried to warn the United Nations of the dan gtis it would face in trying to enforce its decision, armed only with a paper plan. L _

When the inventor left England (his country) in 1818, the Prince Regent, obtained his word of honour that he i would disclose it to no person and no foreign power. He kept his word. That secret weapon is a secret still. Lord Cochrane joined the Navy when he was seventeen, on June 27, 1793. Five years Jater he faced his first court martial for insubordination.
