Three hundred rioters involved in the anti-Jewish outbreak of yesterday have been arrested by the Polish police.

Although the city is apparently quiet, the presence of many wounded Jews in their midst has served to intensify the panic in the Jewish section. Among those attacked by the mob were three sisters, Eva Feige and Anne Birnbaum. A large number of the victims have relatives in the U.S.

Those more severely wounded are Solomon Kleinbaum, Hirsch Raxher, David Flinker, Benjamin Schwartz, Wolf Schwek, Kalmen Kieselstein, Mendel Ciechanowski, Menahem Fell, Abraham Scherman, Samuel Dickfer, Schepsel Herman. Solomon Tilbor, Isaac Teitelbaum, Menachem Freid, Hirsch Bornstein, Jakob Eltret, Aron Prager, Abraham Warszewiak, Szvmon Anders, Moses Lifschitz, Berl Bernstein, Leon Goldkranz, Ida Mandelbaum, Moses Nachtigal, Majer Bernstein, Felix Fraenkel, Moses Zielonke, Isaak Rozenzweig, David Schafran, Reuvin Eisenberg, David Feldwurm, Chaim Rotenstein, Leon Ernt, Jakob Widnitzki, Bronislaw Oelbaum, Chaim Salzstein, Pinkus Rapaport, Szymon Steirman and Isaak Ferber.
