The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (J.C.B.) will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

Supported by all the minority deputies the Jewish Sejm Club has petitioned the government to temper the refugee law with mercy in the treatment of the Jewish refugees about to be expelled from Poland. They ask that all the homeless Jews be permitted to remain until September. The government is also requested to issue passports to all countries including Russia. Several hundred of the refugees have obtained permision to immigrate to Palestine.
