The Slovak leader, Hlinka, was sentenced to eight days imprisonment by the Higher Court here. The sentence was imposed on Hlinka for having called Masaryk, the president of the Czechoslovakian Republic, “tateleben,” (Yiddish expression for father dear), binting at the legend of Masaryk’s Jewish origin.
