The arrival here of 34 schochtim to prepare 1,000,000 cans of kosher meat donated by the government of Eire to Jewish displaced Persons was featured today in all Irish newspapers.

At the same time, the arrival of the schochtim was made the occasion of an anti-shechita campaign on the part of certain sections of the press, with the society for the Protection of Animals participating. Letters from readers also appeared in several newspapers today attacking the government for donating the meat to Jews.
