Two Soviet officials, the Chairman and the Secretary of the local Soviet in Pavlotch, district of Belozerkoff, were dismissed after charges of anti-Semitic practices had been brought against them. They will be tried by the Soviet Court.

The Chairman of the Communist Ispolkom in the district of Chmelnick, Isaeff, was guilty of open anti-Jewish discrimination according to a complaint published by the Yiddish Communist daily “Stern.” Isaeff issued orders to the local mills to grind one pud of flour monthly for every citizen, excepting the Jews, irrespective of their social position.
