The establishment of a Nationalist Polish Government, free of the representation and influence of the minority nationalities is contemplated by a proposed government coalition made up of the Christian Bloc, the National Democratic Party and other reactionary groups in Parliament.

The object of the new fusion is to prevent the incursion of members of the minorities nationalities in the military headquarters, and the securing of such laws as will limit radically the admission of Jewish and other students into the higher seats of learning.

The proposed coalition would endeavor also to establish Polish national domination in commerce. This done, it will seek the passage of a new election law assuring a Polish majority, and when this is achieved a movement for new elections will be launched.
