40 Endeks, Held in Przytyk Pogrom, Lose Plea for Release

A court today rejected a plea for the release of some forty anti-Semites pending trial for participation in the March 10 disorders in Przytyk in which three persons were killed and more than a score injured.

The counsel for the defendants based his request on what he said was the relaxed Government policy toward the anti-Semitic Endeks. He cited the freeing of Endeks held in concentration camps. The trial is scheduled for June 2 at Radom.
