(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The assertion that intermarriage is beginning to spread in the Jewish colonies in the district of Krivoy Rog was made in reports of a delegation of Russian workers sent to the Colonies. The delegation was sent to investigate whether the Jews themselves work the land or hire laborers to cultivate the fields for them.

In its report the delegation stated it found that the Jews work the land as well as the old peasants. The spreading of intermarriage, which the report alleges exists, is not considered a tragedy by the Jewish settlers, the delegation stated.
