The authorities have decided not to permit Jewish workers to participate in the May 1 demonstration of Polish workers, it was disclosed today. The reason given was that a joint demonstration under present circumstances might result in sanguinary encounters.

The departure from previous practice was taken as intimation that Jewish labor demonstrations would be permitted only in Jewish sections of the city.
