Military Authorities Prohibit Military Training for De’s in U.S. Zone of Germany

An order prohibiting displaced persons from engaging in surreptitious military training activities within the American zone of Germany has been issued here by U.S. military headquarters.

The order stated that reports have been received that male DP’s between the ages of 18 and 35 were “allegedly engaged in military exercises.” Since the outbreak of hostilities in Palestine it has frequently been reported that the Haganah is training displaced Jews waiting to immigrate to Israel.
