Bundists Deplore Orthodx”hooligan Ism”

December 27, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Deploring what the paper calls orthodox hooliganism, the Volkszeitung, organ of the Bundists, complained that news boys selling the paper on Saturday are assaulted by chassidim. The paper recites a number of instances where news boys were maltreated by the pious for trafficing with the Saturday edition. Jewish workers are continually called upon to rescue news boys from their orthodox aggressors, the Volkszeitung charges.

The paper compares the tolerance shown in America where Yiddish papers are published on Saturday and where there are no scandals.
