See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Considerable excitement has been created in Lodz as a result of the indiscriminate feeding of children of a summer colony of 2,000 where approximately 70 Jewish children were entertained and were fed ham.

The Jewish children, with the exception of one lad, refused to partake and abruptly left the colony. Orthodox Jewish leaders have protested the act of the managers of the colony.
