Protest Against Arrest OL Wafdist Editors APPEAL TO U.S. PRESS Rec. 11 a.m. NEW YORK, Aug. 1. Wafdist newspapers did not publish to-day as a protest against the arrest of Wafdist editors for their bitter attacks on Egyptian Ministers, says Reuters Cairo correspondent. The papers are expected to appear to-morrow. The leading Wafdist newspaper Almisri, in a cable to the chairman of the American Committee of Editors and Publishers for the freedom of the Press, Mr. Wilbur Forrest, said the strike was a protest against discrimination and unfair treatment by the present Government. "The editors were arrested and held without trial," the cabte message stated. The message asked the American committee "to raise its voice in defence of the sacred right of freedom of opinion." Middle East observers believe this campaign is part of a plan to pave the way for the political recovery of the Wafdist party.
