Expulsion of Jews from Lodz, Poland, has been ordered, it was reported today. No details were available.

The German authorities have officially announced discontinuance of mail deliveries from abroad to persons in the occupied territory. Mail will continue to be delivered, however, in areas annexed by the Reich.

Because of continued illegal immigration, further rigorous measures are reported to have been introduced in Soviet areas. They include three-year prison terms for refugees caught crossing the frontier. Polish currency will be invalid starting January 1 in the Soviet territory. The measure will further aggravate the position of refugees there.
