Jewish Delegation Protests to Argentine Minister Against Anti-semitic Activities of Police

A delegation of Jewish leaders today called upon Gen, Felipe Urdapilleta, Minister of the Interior, and protested to him against the recurrent anti-Jewish disturbances here.

The delegation complained that twenty policemen broke into the Y.M.H.A. premises on Nov, 24, and arrested several people there. The Jewish leaders requested that the Minister institute an investigation in order to establish the responsibility of the police so that the guilty may be punished.

General Urdapilleta told the delegation that he recognizes that anti-Jewish agitation exists in Buenos Aires and promised energetic measures. The Jews in Argentina, he said, deserve the same consideration as all other inhabitants of the country.
