Jewish Dp’s Start Fourth Day of Hunger Strike; Send Leaders to Inspect New Camps

Representatives of displaced Jews in the Zelsheim camp near here who went on a hunger strike in protest against an American army order to move to camps in Bavaria left today to examine possible temporary Bavarian camps, Reuters reports.

The report said that the hunger strike started on Monday and was entering its fourth day today. The displaced Jews request that they be allowed to remain at Zelsheim for the few months remaining before most of them leave for Israel.
