A change for the better in the situation of Ukrainian Jewry was promised by the newly elected president of the Lithuanian Republic, Dr. Kasmir Grinins.
In a press interview he stated that his program would be to satisfy the demands of the national minorities in Lithuania and to bring about a modification of the compulsory Sunday observance law, by which the Jewish population would find relief.
Dr. Grinins held the office of Premier of Lithuania from 1920 to 1922.
