Download PDF for this date

The Government intends under Jewish pressure to modify the Compulsory Sunday Closing Law, prohibiting trading in future only during the actual hours of Church services, the “Gazeta Warszawska”, the antisemitic organ of the National Democratic Party, asserts to-day. The Government further intends, it says, to enforce an eight-hour working day, which will apply only to outside employees, however, while shops where no outside help is employed will be able to keep open as long as they like.

Similar reports of imminent modification of the Compulsory Sunday Observance Law have appeared in various papers from time to time, without any action following, however, along the lines forecast.
