Premier Klement Gottwald today told Chief Rabbi Isaac Herzog of Palestine that Czechoslovakia would be willing to admit 750 Jewish children from Poland. Dr. Herzog thanked the Premier for the hospitality which his country has extended to Jews fleeing Poland.

The Ministry of the Interior announced last night that 31 persons have been arrested in Bratislava on charges of provoking the anti-Jewish incidents which occurred in that city last week.
