Schwartzbard Trial Bar to Minorities’ Unity in Poland, Ukrainians Say

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Rumors to the effect that the Ukrainians in Poland will support the proposal that all national minorities in the Republic of Poland join to form one bloc during the forthcoming parliamentary elections were dispelled in a statement issued to the press by Ukrainian leaders.

Previous press reports, stated that all groups of the national minorities are eager to repeat their action during the last parliamentary elections, expecting that they would return at least one hundred deputies to the new Sejm. In their statement the Ukrainian leaders deny that such a possibility exists now, pointing out that there is a divergence of opinion within the Jewish parties and adding that a bloc between the Ukrainians and Jews is not possible now because of the Schwartzbard trial.

A report from Cracow to the Polish Telegraphic Agency states that Petlura memorial meetings were arranged by the Ukrainian Students Organization in the Greek Orthodox church and in Copernicus Hall at the University of Cracow.
