Baruch Kerzman of Jaffa has been sent to prison at Acre for his failure to deposit $500 as a guarantee of good behavior. Yona Vigosin was also ordered to put up a deposit. Kerzman, who has recently returned from Russia, is suspected by the police of having gone through a course in a Communist institute for propaganda in the East. Virgosin was a Communist candidate at the last municipal elections in Tel Aviv.
