Demand for Jewish Schools Rejected

That the city budget should include the expense necessary to maintain special schools for the Jewish children where special Jewish instruction would be given, was the demand of the Jewish aldermen in the City Council of Warsaw, in the discussion of the school budget. The aldermen also demanded that the city appropriate a special sum as a subsidy for the now existing schools in Warsaw. The proposals of the Jewish aldermen were rejected by a majority of votes which included those of the Polish Socialists.
