A Ukrainian named Harwalka was sentenced to death and another, Misak, to life imprisonment by a Lwow court today for the murder of a Jewish family named Friedman in the town of Janow, East Galicia.

The defendants pleaded that murdering Jews was no crime and that, to the contrary, was an act deserving of credit.

A Sosnowiec court sentenced three leaders of the Polish Nationalist Party to prison terms varying from eight to eighteen months for bombing Jewish shops. Six other defendants were acquitted.

A district court here sentenced three men to prison terms ranging from six months to two and a half years for participating in anti-Jewish disorders near Radom in November, 1935, during which two Jews were killed.
