(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The one day insurance policies issued on hired motor cars are not to be granted to Jews, actors and bookmakers, according to instructions issued by insurance brokers here, the “Sunday Express” stated yesterday.

Garage owners were notified to this effect by the brokers. The paper states that in explaining these instructions the brokers charged: “The Jews when hiring cars, pack them with families and children and drive off for a joyous outing irresponsibly, without caring about the car because it is insured. A very high number of claims have been received from Jews. Therefore the companies must be careful.”
