(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Former Senator Elijab Mendelsohn, who was unseated by a vote in the Senate, has withdrawn as candidate for reelection. The reason Mr. Mendelsohn’s election was called invalid was given as being that his name as it appeared on the ballot was different from that on his birth certificate.

Mr. Mendelsohn urged the electors to vote for Mr. Vishnitzer, a prominent Jewish manufacturer of Czernowitz.
