An order was issued by the Lithuanian government today dissolving a number of Lithuanian Zionist Youth organizations, including the Brith Trumpeldor, Brith Chail, Brith Kanoim, Chalutz Mizrachi, Chalutz Zion Klali and all their training centers in the country.

At the same time the government temporarily suspended an order requiring all Palestine pioneers (Chalutzim) who are not natives of Siauliai to leave the town within three days and return to their native towns. The order was issued after the energetic intervention of a Jewish delegation.

Police Chief Kalendro of Siauliai appeared today before the Minister of the Interior with a report on anti-Jewish incidents in Siauliai and Kushani. It is understood that the minister ordered severe administrative measures against the participants.
