Jewish Telegraphic Agency

Duelling has become the fashion among the leaders of the strife-torn Jewish groups and parties in Poland.

The newspapers today report another duel which will take place within a few days, between two Zionist leaders, one representing the Gruenbaum radical group, Al Hamishmar, and the other the Eth Livnoth, Weizmannist group. Neither the names of the duellists nor their seconds were disclosed. It is known, however, that one of the duellists is a member of the Polish Senate.

A cablegram from Warsaw to the ” Jewish Morning Journal” states that the two duellists are Dr. M. Hindes of the Eth Livnoth group and Senator Koernor. Deputy Gruenhaum was named as one of Koerner’s seconds.
