Download PDF for this date

Deputy Leon Blum, Jewish leader of the French Socialist Party, will submit an interpellation in Parliament calling upon the French government to take stringent measures to suppress the Arab attacks on the Jews of Tunisia, it is learned here today.

Anti-Jewish attacks on the part of Arabs have been recurrent throughout Tunisia in the past several months, and while Premier Herriot has promised measures to prevent their renewal, the attacks have not yet ceased.
