The increase of hooliganism in cities having a considerable Jewish population has been noted in White Russia, according to the newspaper, “Okliabr,” Yiddish Communist paper.

The paper complains that in the Jewish quarters of the cities and in villages cases of anti-Jewish hooliganism have occurred and many arrests have been made. The paper demands that strict measures be taken to stop the activity of the groups which have attracted peaceful persons and interupted the sessions in the Jewish schools.
