Visiting the sins of children upon their fathers is apparently the principle of the school authorities in Baranowicze, Poland, who instituted proceedings against local Jewish citizens on the charge of disloyalty to the state.
The citizens are the fathers of pupils in the Tarbuth School who went on strike when the language of instruction was changed from Hebrew to Polish.
The change was decided upon by some members of the committee responsible for the maintenance of the high school with the view of securing for it public rights which were denied it because of the employment of Hebrew as the language of instruction. When the change was effected the Nationalist element among the pupils protested and declared a strike.
