Polish Jews Praised by Papers for Peace Gestures to Lithuania

The Polish press today highly praised the Jews of Poland for aiding in the difficult task of establishing friendly relations between the Polish and Lithuanian governments, which have been at odds since the Polish occupation of Wilno by the bands of General Zelguski.

The athletic games initiated by the Polish Maccabee organization in Kaunas, Lithuania, between Polish Jewish and Lithuania teams were hailed by Polish papers as helpful and friendly gestures.

This is the first instance of athletic games between the two nations in over ten years.
