The Polish Socialist Party was vigorrously attacked by Beryl Locker, a Jewish Socialist from Poland, in attendance at the Socialist Congress here. “Polish Socialists” he said, “are not only tolerating the anti-Semitic Government, but are giving it their support. Moro than that, Polish Socialists have found it possible to go hand in hand with the Fascisti”.

The delegations from nearly all countries include prominent Jewish socialists. Edward Bernstein and Hilferding are in the German Delegation. Deputy Pistiner is with the Roumaniane. The Russian Socialists are represented, among others, by the Bundists Abramowitz and Steinberg. Deputy Treves is a member of the Italian Delegation. The American Delegation includes Morris Hillquit, Judge Jacob Pankan and Morris Berman. The Poale Zionists are also represented, their delegates including S. Kaplansky, a member of the Zionist Executive, M. Rubashoff of Berlin and Beryl Locker of Poland.
