General Haller’s Visit to Boston Curtailed

Download PDF for this date

The visit of General Haller of Poland November 30 has been curtailed from two days to eight hours, it is understood, because of uneasiness among the sponsors of the General’s visit in consequence of the protests of the Jews and Ukrainians.

This is a second change in the schedule, an announcement a few days ago being that the General would spend a whole day in Boston.

It is doubtful now whether Mayor Curley will receive the General, as the City Hall reception was scheduled for the morning and General Haller is not due to arrive before noon. The General’s functions here are limited to those arranged by Polish societies.
