A district court today sentenced four Nationalists to prison terms of six months each for participating in anti-Jewish disorders in the town of Minsk-Mazowiecki last July, when more than a score of Jews were wounded and considerable Jewish property destroyed.

Give other Nationalist defendants were acquitted. A tenth, a minor, was sentenced to detention in the House of Correction.

The Court of Appeals quashed a two-year prison term given a Jewish cripple, Zalman Grinzweig, for “attacking Poles” in Napoleon Place, the heart of Warsaw. Grinzweig had served four months of the term.
