Nationalist newspapers reported today that the last six Jewish families in the town of Middle Ziedzige, in the Wilno District, have emigrated because of the anti-Jewish boycott there.

The Polish Baker’s Union rejected a Nationalist demand that it introduce the “Aryan” paragraph, barring Jews from membership.

A meeting of Warsaw cab drivers turned down a proposal by Nationalist members that Jewish cabbies be forced to wear placards marked Jew.

Thirty-one Nationalists were scheduled to go on trial in Lomza District Court today on charges of participating in anti-Semitic excesses in the village of Czyzew last January 5.

A Congress at Wilno of the Polish Union of Municipalities refused yesterday to allow a proposal to bar Jews from membership to be put to a vote on the ground it violated the organization’s constitution.

The congress also declined to listen to an address by Advocate Kowalski, a leader of the anti-Semitic Nationalist Party.
