The Yiddish Communist daily “Emes” complains today to the Soviet authorities that the work of the Jewish cooperatives, encouraged by the government, is being interfered with by the Soviet finance inspectors.
These officials who are charged with the collection of taxes impose taxes on the cooperatives as high as those demanded of private enterprises. Such action brings the cooperatives to ruin and annihilates the constructive relief being carried on for the declassed Jews in the small towns, the paper complains.
