The possibility of a Jewish representative being included in the Polish Cabinet as a full-fledged member was discussed in Polish Government circles here today in connection with the reorganization of the Cabinet resulting from the sudden death of Gen. Sikorski.

It is understood that the step will be taken in order to assure proper Jewish representation in the Polish Government. Among the candidates mentioned are Dr. Henryk Rosmarin, former member of the Polish Parliament who is now Polish Consul in Tel Aviv, Dr. Ignacy Schwartzbart, the Jewish member of the Polish National Council, Dr. Emanuel Szerer, the Jewish labor leader who was recently named a member of the Polish National Council, Judge Maximilian Friede, who is now in New York, and Rabbi Rubenstein, former member of the Polish Senate.

The Polish Ministry of Commerce and Industry today announced that Dr. Schwartzbart has been appointed by the government as a member of the commission for post-war economic planning.
