Download PDF for this date

Advocate Kowalski, president of the local National Democratic (Endek) party, who was accused, with eleven others, of having insulted Marshal Jozef Pilsudski, Polish dictator, and of having carried out anti-Semitic attacks last Summer, was acquitted yesterday, with his alleged accomplices, on both charges.

Seven others being tried on similar charges were sentenced to from ten to thirty months’ imprisonment, a total sentence of ten years and two months being meted out.

The motive for acquittal of twelve of the accused was that it had been demonstrated the Endek party had no conspirative character.

During the trial, which began about a week ago, it was testified that the Endeks had carried on their incitement with the full knowledge of their party leaders.
