Order Investigation of Head of Government Grain Trust when Food Refused Jewish Settlers

A strict investigation of the administrator of the government grain trust, Ch. Garon, who allegedly has refused employment to Jewish newcomers in Stalindorf, has been ordered by the State’s Attorney in Bira Bidjan.

It has already been established by a special committee appointed by the Communist Party investigating the reasons for food shortage that misman-agement is responsible for this situation. On the other hand, it was learned that the Land Commissariat has ordered the liquidation of all stations in the Chabarovsk region which were established to grant food and shelter to Jewish immigrants enroute to Bira Bidjan.

The building of the agricultural institute at Chabarovsk was also discontinued. This, according to a wire received by the “Emess,” endangers Jewish agricultural plans.

Rashkes has telegraphed that immigrants arriving from Germany and the Argentine for settlement in Bira Bidjan, will be housed in camps until the fall when houses will be found for them. He states that better treatment must be accorded foreign settlers inasmuch as the newly arrived groups are complaining.
