The Czechoslovakian Minister of Health, Sramek, has accepted the post of honorary president of the International Jewish Sport Festival scheduled to open here next week.

President Masaryk’s chancellory has announced that it will award a prize for the best Jewish athlete at the festival. The Prague City government will entertain the victors.

The Christian population of the capital is cooperating with the committee in arranging for the festival. About 10,000 guests are expected and many Christians have offered their homes to accommodate the guests free of charge.
