Anti-semitic Manifestos Hark Opening of Election Drive in Polish Cities

Preparations for the municipal elections in Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow and Poznan commenced today. The Warsaw elections are fixed for Dec. 12. Since municipal elections have a more democratic basis than the parliamentary balloting, all parties, both polish and Jewish, will participate.

The National Democrats, National Radicals and Falangists (Fascists) have published election manifestos competing in violence of anti-Semitic utterance. The government’s camp for National Unity has not published its program yet, but it is expected to contain some anti-Semitic proposals, as does its parliamentary program.
