Students of general educational institutions and pedagogical seminaries. who know Yiddish, will be appointed as teachers in the Jewish schools in the Ukraine, according to a decision of the Central Committee of the Communist Party in Ukrainia.

This decision was taken because of the lack of Jewish teachers in the Jewish schools. The students will be appointed to fill posts in the newly established schools. The Bureau has applied to the All Union Central Committee of the Communist Party, that a part of the students of the Moscow and Leningrad pedagogical schools should be delegated to teach in Ukrainia and that steps be taken to facilitate the immigration of Jewish teachers from abroad.

During the year 1925, 798,400 Yiddish books were published in the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics, according to figures made known here today. Of this number 196,000 were text books, 220,000 were of political content and 193,000 were periodicals.
