Withdrawal of Support from Kurt Eisner’s Widow Urged Afier Support Actually Discontinued

The anti-Semitic zeal of the Voelkische Partei in the Bavarian Diet was very much belated in the case of the window of Kurt Eisner.

A motion was introduced by that party urging the government to discontinue the pension granted to the window of the slain Socialist Bavarian leader, because his real name was not Kurt Bisner, but Solomon Kosmanofsky. This unnecsessary motion was taken off the agenda after a statement by the Finance Minister of Bavaria to the effect that the pension had been discontinued when the depreciation of the German mark had stopped.
