(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An insult hurled at Czechoslovakian Jews by the authorities of the public baths near Prague called forth wide resentment and caused the leaders of the Jewish community to make official protests.

The bath authorities announced that “admission of Jews and dogs prohibited.”

The Jewish National Council of Prague protested to the Country Council without results. Steps have now been taken to present the matter to the Central government.
