Polish Emigration Office Bars Jews from American Quota, Senator Charges

Grave charges against the Polish Official Emigration office were made yesterday ## Rotenstreich. The Senator stated that the Emi-

gration Office purposely delayed the affidavits for America of the Jewish applicants for such a period that the Polish quota was exhausted by the Christian Poles, making it impossible for them to obtain visas for America.

He also stated that the Polish agencies of the steamship companies were advised in a semi-official way to discharge their Jewish personnel and to substitute them with Christians.

The statements of Senator Rotenstreich, which were made to the Budget Commission of the Diet have caused a sensation.
