(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Representatives of the Jewish press in the Polish capital were invited yesterday to inspect the half completed building which is being erected to house a new Jewish high school where Yiddish is to be employed as the language of instruction for all subjects.

The school will have a capacity of four hundred. A fund for the erection of the building was raised by the building committee mainly among Jewish workingmen. Some sume were obtained in overseas countries, including Palestine. The committee stated that the amount of 6,000 Zlotys will be required to complete the building and an appeal was issued to friends of the Yiddish school to make contributions.
