Turkization of Jewish Masses Sought by Constantinople Leaders

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Turkization of the Jewish population in the country is the object of a new organization founded by a number of leading Jewish notables here.

The program of the new agency is to promote the spread of the Turkish language among the Jewish masses, to introduce Turkish in all Jewish schools and to open evening classes for adults.

The Turkish press expresses satisfaction with this move of the Jewish notables, calling it a patriotic action.
