Bratislava dispatches said today that the anti-Semitic Hlinka Guards have taken measures to prevent Jews from entering cafes. According to Nazi newspapers reaching here, special cafes will be set aside for Jews in Bratislava, with non-Jews forbidden to patronize them.

The same papers report that Jews are being forced to shovel snow throughout Slovakia without pay, the money coming to them for their work being turned over by the Slovak authorities to a special fund for needy non-Jewish families.
