(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Meeting the economic demands of the national minorities in the Republic of Poland, relieving the Jewish population to some extent from the compulsory Sunday rest law, as well as meeting the demands of the national minorities with regard to the school question are a few of the points in the program of the provisional government under Marshal Pilsudski, according to a statement made today by government representatives at a conference with press representatives.

The declaration stated that the government is now preparing extentive plans concerning the necessary changes of a political and economic nature. A change in the ordinance governing the election of deputies and senators to the Polish parliament and senate is also contemplated. The government is convinced that the Sejm will decide to dissolve. The Minister of Justice is preparing a bill concerning the contemplated changes in the Polish constitution, according to the government declaration.
