See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Ministers of all denominations will join the Polish Rabbis in their protest against immodesty in the latest styles of woman’s dress. The Rabbis and Ministers intend to wage an active campaign, spreading propaganda throughout the country, against immodest dress. Official legislation is also proposed, to be used as a weapon in this fight.

Initiative has been taken by the women members of the Polish Diet. A bill has been prepared calling for prohibition of the display of nude figures in illustrations in print and in show-windows. The bill will be brought up shortly.
