While several members of the National Radical (Nara) party were jailed today in connection with anti-Jewish disturbances in the Jewish Ararat Theatre, two bomb outrages were reported in two streets of Warsaw thickly populated with Jews. A Jewish grocery shop and a Jewish restaurant were demolished.

The bombings took place in Naskolce street and in Piotra street. None of the culprits was caught.

Those arrested for anti-Semitic riots in the Ararat Theatre were sentenced, some to three and others to seven days imprisonment.


A threat that the Jews in Lodz will be treated by the municipality as third-class citizens was voiced openly last night at the first session of the new Lodz municipal council, which is dominated by the anti-Semitic National Democratic party. The spokesman of this party, opening the session, made a bitter attack upon the Jews.

A Jewish representative was compelled to answer the anti-Semitic spokesman at the same session. Declaring that it was the Jews who had built up Lodz as an industrial center, the Jewish representative said the Jews will not be terrorized. His speech was received with cheers by the Socialist and Government party members of the council.
