A delegation of parents of Jewish children attending governmental elementary schools called on Vice-Minister of Education Nenczak yesterday to present their demands on behalf of the parents.

The delegation asked that the Jewish children attending state schools be instructed in Yiddish.

The spokesman of the delegation, a member of the Printers’ Union, addressed the Minister in Yiddish. He spoke for an hour by the consent of the Minister, who promised the delegation to consider the proposal.
