Jacob Kalich and Molly Picon, Amrican Jewish actors who were the headliners at the Jewish theatre in Bucharest, closed yesterday by the government have appealed to the United States Minister at Bucharest to use his good offices to have the closing order rescinded.

While no reasons were given in the closing of the theatre, it is believed to be due to the fact that it was the scene of anti-Jewish riots in Bucharest last week.
