Download PDF for this date

Sportive throngs who flocked to a Wilno athletic field today in the hope of seeing a close game between the Palestine Hapoel and Maccabi football teams were furnished more serious fare when a new flare-up of bitterness between the Zionist Revisionist and Laborite factions culminated in a rough-and-tumble, hand-to-hand clash.

Although there were several casualties, no one was seriously injured, and police, who were called to quell the outbreak, made no arrests.
