(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Fifty Jewish working girls employed in the factory, Dwina, at Witebsk left the plant as a group in protest against anti-Semitic mistreatment, states a report received here from Russia.

When the girls protested to the Commissar in charge of the factory, he said anything can be done to Jews.
