Ordered to End Attacks on Moscow Yevsektzia

An order to discontinue the publication of open letters in which Moscow leaders of the Yevsektzia are criticized, was issued today by the Central Yevsektzia at Moscow to the newspapers, “Shtern” and “Oktiabr.” At the same time the writers on the “Emes” resolved to ask higher Communist party authorities to intervene against the systematic attacks conducted by the White Russian Jewish Communist leaders against Litvakov, editor of the “Emes,” questioning his leadership. The fight between the Moscow and White Russian Yevsektzia is so serious that it is learned that either Litvakov or some of the White Russian leaders may be compelled to quit.
