(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Yechiel Mastbaum, a former member of the Polish Legion and a brother of the Yiddish novelist, Joel Mastbaum, was appointed reporter for the Polish Foreign Office on current Jewish events.

The appointment was the climax of an investigation instituted by Assistant Foreign Minister Wysocki on the complaint of the Jewish deputy, Rozmarin, that a release issued under the auspices of the Foreign Office contained unjustified and insulting reference to Polish Jewry.

The Vice-Minister has apologized and declared that the release was due to a slip on the part of the official in charge. The official was reprimanded and ordered not to receive any further information on Jewish questions from the Polish news agency, Wip, which was the source of the derogatory report.
