DR. RUPPIN'S APPEAL IN THE "DOAR HAYOM" CASE.

   The appeal in the case of Dr. Ruppin and the Palestine Land Development Company versus Mr. Ittamar Ben-Avi and the "Doar Hayom" was commenced yesterday morning before the Supreme Court, composed of Sir Thomas Haycraft, the Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Seton, Acting Vice-President of the Court of Appeal, and Mr. Justice Khayat.  Arguments on the legal points were heard at length.  The Court decided that the decision of the District Court as to the earlier group of articles being a finding of fact could not be appealed.  With regard to the second group of articles, the Court reserved judgment upon the question whether the decision of the District Court was a decision on a point of law and therefore subject to appeal, or a decision on a point of fact and therefore not subject to appeal.

   Counsel were Mr. Harry Sacher, acting for the Attorney-General, for the prosecution, and Mr. Horace B. Samuel, for the defence.
