One hundred Jewish youths, sent to work in the Donetz coal mines, have found difficulties in the way of their working there. The majority of them have returned because of their physical inability to do the work.

The “Emes,” Communist Yiddish daily, complains that the mines administration did not sufficiently encourage the Jewish workers, as had been previously planned.
