Tension Relaxes in Warsaw; Exaggerated Reports Published Here

WITH THE AUTHORITIES SHOWING DETERMINATION TO SUPPRESS NEW OUTBREAKS, TENSION RESULTING FROM SEVERAL DAYS OF UNCEASING ANTI-JEWISH STREET ATTACKS RELAXED IN THE CAPITAL TODAY. NO MORE DISORDERS HAVE BEEN REPORTED SINCE LAST NIGHT.

MEANWHILE THE MUNICIPAL COURT SENTENCED TWELVE YOUTHFUL HOODLUMS TO JAIL TERMS RANGING FROM SEVEN TO FOURTEEN DAYS FOR ASSAULTING JEWS AND SMASHING WINDOWS.

REPORTS PUBLISHED ABROAD THAT SOLDIERS IN ARMORED CARS HAD BEEN CALLED IN TO PATROL WARSAW STREETS WERE ASCERTAINED TO BE UNTRUE. OTHER REPORTED DETAILS OF EVENTS OF THE LAST FEW DAYS WERE FOUND ON INVESTIGATION TO BE HIGHLY EXAGGERATED.

LAST NIGHT ANTI-SEMITIC GANGS ASSEMBLED BEFORE A JEWISH HOSPITAL IN THE CZYSTE DISTRICT OF WARSAW AND ATTACKED WOMEN VISITORS. EARLIER, OTHER GANGSTERS FELL UPON JEWISH FUNERAL PROCESSIONS.

TWENTY ENDEKS (NATIONALIST DEMOCRATS) WERE ARRESTED YESTERDAY FOR ATTACKS ON JEWS IN THE TOWNS OF OSMIANY AND NOWAWILEJKA IN THE WILNO DISTRICT.

IT WAS ASCERTAINED TODAY THAT OF THE MORE THAN 200 PERSONS ARRESTED FOR PARTICIPATION IN RECENT ANTI-SEMITIC DISORDERS, NEARLY HALF ARE JEWS.
