Download PDF for this date

Two West Germans were given four-month jail sentences this weekend for throwing stones at a synagogue here.

According to the trial testimony, the men, identified as a 31-year-old man by the name of Turner and a 23-year-old mechanic, had been drinking in a bar owned by a Jew and when they were refused additional drinks by a waitress after midnight, they promptly left the bar directly for the synagogue.
