No Anti-jewish Riots in Crimea: Denial Issued by Dr. Rosen Head of Agrojoint

Recent reports appearing in newspapers abroad about anti-Jewish riots having been carried out in the Jewish colonies in the Crimea by non-Jewish peasants in the vicinity, as a result of which M. Kalinin, the President of the Soviet Union, had to make a special journey to the Crimea to calm down the peasantry, are officially denied to-day by Dr. Joseph Rosen, the head of the Agrojoint, following an investigation which he has carried out in connection with these reports.

The report is false from beginning to end, Dr. Rosen declares. Everything in the Crimea is normal. No clashes have ever occurred in the Crimea, and M. Kalinin has not been to the Crimea since a year ago.
