Download PDF for this date

A Communist and a rightist deputy engaged in a bitter controversy on the floor of Parliament yesterday when the latter, K.S.Novak, attacked the Ministry of Agriculture for having “too many foreign and non-Slav names” on its employees’ register. Communist deputy Karel Smrkovsky attacked Novak, declaring that this was the first occasion since the liberation that any deputy had dared to utter “anti-Semitic fascist talk” on the floor of Parliament.
