Discriminatory Legal Status Demanded for Jews in Barvaria

A special legal status for the Jewish population of Barvaria, recalling the discriminations practiced against the Jews in Germany during the Mediaeval ages, was demanded yesterday by the nationalistic German Voelkische Partei in a motion introduced at the first meeting of the newly elected Barvarian Diet.

One of the clauses of this motion calls for the annulment of all Germanized names of Jews, and for the prohibition of Jews from Germanizing their names.

Another motion introduced by the Voelkische Partei demands the abolishment of the pension granted by the Barvarian Government to the widow of Kurt Eisner.
