Nineteen Endeks, members of the National Democratic anti-Semitc and ant### government party, went on trial here today charged with having “insulted Marshal Joseph Pilsudski” last Summer and “incited against the Jews.”

More than 180 witnesses were in court prepared to testify. ‘The prosecutors are prepared to ask for sentences for the group ranging from two to five years.

The accused deny membership in any “conspiratorial” organization, as alleged by the state, but proudly affirm they “fought the Jews, who are anti-Polish.”

The entire Endek press in Poland is utilizing the opening of the trial to begin a vigorous anti-Jewish campaign in every section of the land.
