Tension in Poland

Download PDF for this date

Tension between Revisionists and young Zionist laborites is increasing despite strict orders from officials in the Revisionist and labor groups to their memberships to refrain from any acts of violence or revenge in connection with the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff. Reports circulated here that angry laborites had attacked Revisionist premises because the alleged slayer of the Palestine labor leader is a Revisionist, proved unfounded.

Special editions of the Revisionist organ, Die Welt, triumphantly assert that Abraham Stavsky, Polish Revisionist who is being held in connection with the murder, established an alibi at his hearing before a Tel Aviv magistrate yesterday. At the hearing Stavsky asserted he had been in Jerusalem on the night that Dr. Arlosoroff was slain in Tel Aviv.
