The Club had decided that its members absent themselves from the ceremonies as an expression of protest against the policy of the Pilsudski cabinet. Notwithstanding this decision. Senator Deutscher, representative of the Agudath Israel. Senator Bodek, representative of the Zionists. Deputy Hausner, the Mizrachi representative, and Deputies Feldman and Weinzicher, non -partisan, attended the ceremonies at the royal castle.
