The Congress of the Protestant Church, with the Protestant Bishop of Yugoslavia attending, decided today to accept Jews as converts only after a one-year trial period.

A certificate of “Aryan” descent is necessary to cross the Yugoslavian frontier, it is stated in a prospectus regarding the tourist season sent to Germany by Putnik, the semi-official travel agency.
