A petition to Ignacy Moscicki, president of the Polish Republic, to lighten the burden of taxation which rests heavily on the Jewish middle classes was voiced by a delegation of the Lutzk Jewish population when it welcomed the president on his visit here.

The president is now on a tour of the Polish part of Volyn, where he is meeting with enthusiastic receptions by the general and the Jewish population.

The Lutzk delegation implored the president to look into the taxation question which makes the existence of many Jewish groups intolerable. The president asked that a memorandum be submitted to him concernnig the matter. He visited the historic synagogue here and received from the hands of a rabbis’ delegation a Holy Scroll as the gift of the Jewish community.
