A number of Jews have been arrested in Bolivia on an accusation of Communism brought against them by “White” Russian immigrants there and the authorities have ordered the Jews to leave the country within six days, says a cable message which has been received by Mr. Alfred M. Cohen, the International President of the Order B’nai B’rith.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency here ### a cable message from its Buenos Aires correspondent, stating that the Federation of Polish Jews there is asking the Polish Embassy in Buenos Aires to intervene in the matter, because all the arrested Jews are Polish subjects.
