See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The projected congress of delegates from all Jewish DP camps and communities in the American zone of Germany was postponed today until Feb. 25, because it was learned that elections were not held in some camps last Sunday, as scheduled. The trend of the voting is not yet clear, because the returns are coming in very slowly.

The elections committee of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews today failed to reach an agreement on whether to declare void the elections in the Munich area. because there were so few votes cast. A decision will be reached Sunday.
