Dmowski, Polish Nationalist to Become Foreign Minister

Download PDF for this date

It is learned that Roman Dmowski, ranking member of the Polish Delegation to the Peace Conference, will succeed Foreign Minister M. Seyda, whose resignation is expected very soon.

Mr. Seyda had indicated sometime ago that he wished to be relieved of his office, but Prime Minister Wites prevailed on him to continue to serve until a desirable successor would be found. It is understood M. Dmowski has accepted Premier Witos’ invitation and the change will soon be announced.

The prospective appointment of M. Dmowski is locked on with apprehension by Jewish and other minority leaders because of Dmowski’s out spoken and ultra-Polish nationalism.
