seem far too slight for us to expect that the Danzig Jewish population will be brought into the scope of the relief work for Polish Jews,” the paper writes. “Yet, the need among large sections of the Jewish population in the Free City of Danzig is very urgent. Besides the same economic causes which exist in Poland, we have also specific reasons which contribute to the distress of the Jewish population,” the paper emphasized.

Meanwhile the plea which the Jewish community of Danzig made to the local authorities to halt intimidation by Nazi pickets of customers entering Jewish stores, remained unanswered, it was disclosed by Jewish leaders today.

Tension is growing in Jewish circles in connection with the enthusiasm among the Nazi population resulting from the decision to dissolve the Danzig Senate. The Nazis are jubilant over the decision and are confident that the elections to the new Senate will mean a sweeping majority for the Nazi party.

The boycott activities which local Nazis are conducting against Jews assumed stronger proportions this week since the authorities have taken no action against the Nazi pickets stationed in front of almost every Jewish store.
