THE POLISH GOVERNMENT NEWSPAPER KURJER PORANNY TODAY WARNED THAT ARMED GUARDS WOULD ACCOMPANY POLISH POSTMEN IN DANZIG UNLESS NAZI AUTHORITIES IN THE FREE CITY STOPPED MOLESTING THEM, THE HAVAS NEWS AGENCY REPORTED.

THE ENTIRE POLISH PRESS TODAY PUBLISHED VIOLENT PROTESTS AGAINST THE ARREST YESTERDAY OF SEVEN POSTMEN AFTER THREE OTHERS HAD BEEN RELEASED ON MONDAY.

“DO DANZIG AUTHORITIES WANT POLAND TO PROTECT ITS OFFICIALS IN FREE CITY TERRITORY WITH AN ARMED ESCORT?” KURJER PORANNY DEMANDED.

THE NEWSPAPERS WARNED THAT INCIDENTS OF THIS KIND ENDANGERED POLISH-GERMAN RELATION.

THE POLISH GOVERNMENT FORMALLY PROTESTED TO DANZIG YESTERDAY AGAINST THE ARRESTS AND SAID THEY WERE CONTRARY TO THE WARSAW ACCORD OF 1921, WHICH STIPULATED THAT FREE CITY AUTHORITIES MAY NOT INTERFERE WITH THE POLISH POSTAL service.
