Jews Appeal for Protection As Polish Groups Plan New Boycott Actions

JEWISH MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AND ECONOMIC ORGANIZATIONS ASKED THE INTERIOR MINISTER IN A MEMORANDUM TODAY TO STRENGTHEN POLICE PROTECTION OF JEWISH SHOPS AND PROHIBIT PICKETING AFTER REPORTS THAT POLISH ORGANIZATIONS WERE PREPARING TO INTENSIFY THE ANTI-SEMITIC BOYCOTT CAMPAIGN SUNDAY.

SENATOR MOSES SCHORR AND DEPUTY ISAAC RUBENSTEIN INTERVENED WITH THE INTERIOR MINISTRY REGARDING PICKETING OF JEWISH SHOPS THE COUNTRY OVER, PARTICULARLY IN CZESTOCHOWA, AND RECEIVED ASSURANCES THAT ORDER WOULD BE MAINTAINED.

GEORGE LANSBURY, NOTED BRITISH PACIFIST, BEFORE LEAVING HERE FOR VIENNA, DECLARED AT A PRESS CONFERENCE, ON THE BASIS OF CONVERSATIONS WITH POLISH STATESMEN, THAT HE WAS SURE THE POLISH GOVERNMENT DID NOT INTEND TO OUST JEWS FROM THE NATION’S LIFE. EXCESSES ARE OCCURRING, HE SAID, BECAUSE OF THE COUNTRY’S GRAVE ECONOMIC POSITION. HE EXPRESSED THE BELIEF THE GOVERNMENT WOULD NOT ALLOW ANTI-JEWISH DISTURBANCES.
