Withdrawal of Zionist representatives from Czechoslovakia and temporary ourtailment of Jewish emigration from that country to Israel was reported here this week-end by Itzhak Raphael, head of the immigration department of the Jewish Agency.

Mr. Raphael said here that the Jewish Agency would shortly withdraw its representatives from Czechoslovakia and close its Prague and Bratislava offices since the Czechoslovak authorities are not now inclined to grant exit permits in substantial numbers.
