Starvation or progress in the industry is the dilemna now faced by the Jewish bakers in Poland.

It was brought out at the National Convention of Jewish Bakery Owners in session here that because of the action taken by the government making it compulsory for bakery owners to change their equipment in conformity with modern hygienic requirements, the Jewish bakers, lacking capital and facilities, face ruin. Four hundred delegates from 160 cities are participating in the proceedings. The Jewish bakers are ready to meet the requirements but they cannot do it immediately. They would require time for gradual adjustment, is was emphasized.

The convention decided to march in a body to the building where the Polish Sejm is meeting and submit to the speakers of the lower and upper House, as well as to government members, a detailed memorandum urging that their plight be considered.
