(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An ordinance introducing flogging as a legal penalty will be promulgated shortly, it was stated here. The penalty is to be applied particularly for depravity.

Sara Braude was sentenced to two months imprisonment to be followed by deportation. The charge brought against her was membership in the Communist party.

Three Communists, held in prison for participating in an illegal assembly, refused to return to their cells after exercise in the prison yard. They threw stones at the wardens but were finally overpowered and punished with lashes. They have been recommended for deportation, which will be carried out in due course, it was declared.
