(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

More arrests of leaders of the Zionist Socialist movement in Soviet Russia were reported in despatches received here from Russia by the Central Bureau of the Poale Zion party. The arrests were alleged to have taken place in Leningrad, Kiev and other Ukrainian towns. The Poale Zionist reports state that the arrests prove the inauguration of a planned extermination campaign against the Zionist movement in Russia which is the chief opponent of the Yevsektzia, the Jewish section of the Communist party, in Jewish life in Russia.
