Anti-Semitic Nationalists (Endeks) in the town of Minsk Mazowiec, thirty miles from Warsaw, spread rumors today that Jewish shopkeepers were selling poisoned food to destroy the Christians. The reports were spread in an effort to strengthen the anti-Jewish boycott being pressed in the town, which was the scene of anti-Jewish disorders recently.
