A resolution calling for the expulsion of all Jews, and gypsies, has been adopted by the Soviet of Kosotobob in the district of Semionov, in the Ukraine, the Ukrainian Communist paper, “Tehervone Selo,” states. The paper reprints the text of the resolution.

“Within the course of 23 days,” the resolution says, “the village must be cleared of all Jews, gypsies and beggars.” The “Tchervone Sclo” asks where were the Communists on the village Soviet when this anti-Semitic resolution was adopted, and why they permitted it to be put to a vote.

Jews should go to Palestine, where they can get as much land as they want; they won’t get any in Russia, the chairman of the Land Collective of Beszenez, at Makhatch-Kala, in Caucasia, tells all Jewish applicants for land, reports the Soviet paper “Krasni Daghestan.” The paper demands that the authorities take action to remove him from his post.
