(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Several applications for the importation of Passover wine from Palestine were denied yesterday by Assistant Secretary Andrews, in charge of prohibition enforcement.

He held that the wine supply in this country is sufficient in quantity and quality for sacramental use.

The applications were received principally from members of the Orthodox Jewish congregations who sought the Palestine wine for Passover.
