Notwithstanding the alarm felt in many Jewish quarters due to the pre-Congress anti-Schechita agitation, the question of the Jewish method of slaughtering animals for food will not come up during the international-congress of the League for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The agenda for the congress which opened here today contains no debate on the schechita.

In order to prvent any anti-Semitic discussion, the praesidium of the congress excluded mention of this subject.
