Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service

The conference to study the problems of the national minorities in Soviet Russia which has just been concluded here, adopted a resolution urging the necessity of creating a special Department at the Communist Academy in Moscow for the purpose of applying the policy of the State with regard to the national minorities.

The new Department will collect and re-issue all materials relating to the Minorities question; it will organize a special library and scientific research bodes for the purpose of studying the most effective method of organizing the administrative, economic and cultural work among the national minorities. It will also issue regular reports dealing with the relations between the national minorities in the Republics of the Soviet Union. The Department will train scientific experts for the cultural institutions of the minorities, and will publish books on the problems of the minorities in the languages of the peoples in the Soviet Union.
