Anders Denies He is Anti-semitic; Says Charges Against Him Emanate from Moscow Radio

Gan. Wladyslaw Anders, Polish anti-Semitic leader who was permitted by State Department authorities to come to the United States to participate in the Pulaski Day parade here yesterday, told a press conference last night that he was not anti-Semitic. He said the charges against him emanate not from the Jewish people, but from the Moscow radio.

Anders said that of all the non-Catholic groups in the army that fought under his command in the Italian campaign in World War II, the Jews had the highest percentage of officers. He added that of 667 Polish Jews in his army, 176 were officers. A Pulaski Day dinner celebration at the Waldorf-Astoria was picketed last night by groups protesting the presence of the Polish general.
