Two Polish Jews associated with the yiddish theater told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that they intended to return to Poland following their vacations in Paris. Jacob Rottbaum, a producer of the Wroclaw State Theater, said he was producing a play based on the works of Sholom Aleichem with a group of Jewish actors. He said he had been giving Yiddish recitals in his city and. although the audience was steadily diminishing, he had not been bothered by Polish authorities. Ruth Taru Kowalska, a well known Yiddish actress of the Jewish State Theater in Poland, said she was returning to Warsaw next week where the theater is playing a full season. Mrs. Ida Kaminska, former director of the Jewish State Theatre, left Poland last year because of the official anti-Semitic campaign and is presently in the United States. She has said she does not intend to return to Poland.
