Excesses Averted in Tientsin

ANTI-JEWISH EXCESSES BY WHITE RUSSIAN MERCENARIES WERE PREVENTED HERE BY A JEWISH VOLUNTEER CORPS WHICH UNDERTOOK TO PATROL THE JEWISH DISTRICTS OF THIS CITY.

THE WHITE RUSSIANS DEMOLISHED THE SOVIET CONSULATE AND LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN OF ANTI-SEMITIC AGITATION. THE JEWISH CORPS WAS FORMED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CHINESE HAD WITHDRAWN.

LATER THE MUNICIPAL ADMINISTRATION OF THE BRITISH AND FRENCH SETTLEMENT ALLOWED THE VOLUNTEERS TO DISBAND, EXPRESSING APPRECIATION OF THEIR BRAVERY AND DISCIPLINE.
