No longer will the well known cry. “Handel, handel,” the equivalent of the American. “I cash clo” be heard in the streets of Warsaw and through the yards of the houses.

A new ordinance forbidding street trading in old clothes has been promulgated. One thousand Jewish traders, who earned their livelihood in this way. will be affected by the new law.
