Zionist Deputy to Duel with Polish Deputy

April 23, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The president of the Polish parliament excluded the deputies, Zerbe and Hartglass from three sittings, and admonished the National Democratic Deputy Sawicki to keep order.

This measure was taken following the riot of several days previous when the Jewish deputies were attacked on leaving the Parliament in protest against the unwillingness of the Parliament to hear an urgent interpellation against the anti-Jewish excesses in Warsaw on the occasion of the demonstrations against the execution of Vicar Butchkievitch. The Jewish press accuses the President of partiality for having taken sterner measures against the Jewish deputies.

All efforts to prevent a duel between the Jewish Deputy Hartglass and the Polish Deputy Sawicki proved a failure. Seconds have already been appointed, and the duel is expected to take place some day this week.
