Armed Guards Keep Constant Vigil over Jewish Children to Prevent Attach by Polish Bands

Armed guards keep 24-hour watch on Youth Aliyah homes in Poland to prevent attacks by units of the underground forces commanded by Gen. Wladyslaw Anders, commander of Polish troops in Italy, it was disclosed here today by the Polish delegate to the first post-war conference of the European sections of the Youth Aliyah organization.

The delegate charged that Jewish children were becoming the innocent victims of the clash between the anti-Government and Government forces. He said that although the Government is extremely friendly to the Jews, it is almost powerless to curb the assaults.

He revealed that although for political reasons, the Soviet military forces still in Poland cannot intervene officially in the situation, in many cases Soviet officers have on their own initiative taken action against the anti-Semitic, anti-Government bands.
