(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Newspapers here report a slight to a Jewish delegation by the Polish Archbishop Twardowski.

The Archbishop visited the township Brzeszni several days ago. A delegation representing the local Jewish community including two rabbis, came to the station to offer the greetings of the community to the dignitary of the Catholic church. The delegation brought with them a Sepher Torah. The Archbishop, however, received all delegations except the Jewish, paying no attention to them. When the local Starosta, governor of the city, drew the attention of the Archbishop to the waiting Jewish delegation, he refused to receive them.
