FOREIGN and DOMESTIC ANTI-SEMITIC POSTERS DECOR. ATE WARSAW STREETS. Warsaw: (By I. J. P. B.) A large, printed potter entitled "Bolshevik Freedom", has been plastered . along the streets of Warsaw. It bears the figure of Tfotzky, sitting on a pile of skulls, grotesquesly drawn, with a large beaked nose, a revolver in one .hand, a bayonet in the other, and the whole painted in red. These posters attract big crowds. Anti-Semitic agitators are usually on hand to capitalize the first impression made .and to incite the mob further. Jews that have had the temerity to approach the posters have on many occasions been severely beaten. It has been reported that the same inciting posters have been displayed in the eastern districts of Poland and in military institutions long before they appeared on the streets of the capital. JEWISH RESORT FOR CONSUMP TIVES IN SWITZERLAND ASKS SUPPORT. Daves, Switzerland: (By I. J. P. B.) In its annual report for 1919, the So ciety for the Jewish Cosnumptives In Switzerland appeals to the Jews of other lands for support At its asylum in Davos, a place well known as a health resort, Jewish consumptives not only of Switzerland but of other lands, also, find relief. As a result of the war conditions and of the influ enza, consumption has become more widespread than ever. The resources of the Society, however, are limited and if it is to bring relief to these un fortunates, its funds must be increas ed. From June to the end of Decem ber 1919, only 68 new patients have been receicved at the hospital at De vos, and 118,995 francs expended. Very many afflicted Jews must be turned away because of the lack of means to aid them. The entire capital of the society is 190,580 francs, a trif ling sum for the great number in dis tress.

Since no Jews are accept ed in this army, the apparently "pa triotic" clause of the above measure is merely an officious way of saying that NO JEWS may be admitted into the Hungarian Universities. For the high schools no such diplo matic clause could be found, and so the authorities had to resort to one somewhat clumsier reform was sim ply introduced, requiring all appli cants for high school to pass a special examination.

CORRESPONDENTS from the public grammar school, or its equivalent was sufficient Bat should some Jewish children succeed in safe ly swimming this cataract, a dam was provided to catch all these undesirable fish; the new law gives every Individ ual teacher the privilege of excluding any pupil under him for any or no reason. No explanations from the v m -J vr v v ajjw iiweiviin A v eacher are required. This means, of itAitMA It o f tV a VtrrV atlii-ml a YTiiit- course, that the high schools of Hun gary have also been closed to the Jew ish citizens of that God forsaken coun try. But reactionary ingenuity does not limit its scope to the educational field. Why should Jews be permitted to make an honest living! A few laws here might help. So one was passed, a very stringent law, obviously to re duce the high cost of living and to catch profiteers. It carries extremely heavy money fines, long terms in pris on and public whippings. From its Entered In the Fort Worth Poet office i s Second Class Mall Matter by the Mon- or runuaninir company. i Price Fire Cents NEWS very formulation, it is obvious that the law is not intended to decrease the cost of living. Under its provisions the real profiteers, the great land barons and the industrial lords cannot be touched. The middleman will be di rectly and adversely affected by it It is plain enough that this law aims only at the Jews who form the mer chant class of Hungary. A second law strikes not only at the Jews handling life commodities, but sll Jewish merchants without excep tion. This law has revoked all the trad ing licenses extant, and decreed that all traders must apply for new ones. The government relegates to itself the exclusive right to withhold licenses from whomsoever it pleases without stating the cause. This means that even merchants who have traded all their life-time, and have spent many weary years in building up a business, may be denied a license and may be absolutely ruined through the whim or prejudice of any petty governmen tal official, without even the privil ege, dictated by common decency and the most fundamental laws of human ity, of demanding why the right to an honest livelihood should be withheld from them. To be rid once and for all of Jew ish officials who could not be coerced to resign by less direct methods, a third law was put on the statute books. Heretofore, government offi cials could only be discharged by ac tion of the courts. Now the govern ment has received the right to dis charge any official without making any explanations or stating any reas ons. The first victims of this new pol 'icy will undoubtedly be the Jewish officials. GERMAN COLONIAL SOCIETY PROTESTS ANTI-SEMITIC t CLASSIFICATION. Berlin: (By I. J. P. B.) Tha execu tives of the German Colonial Society have protested against the classifica tion of the organization among the Anti-Semitic national organizations in the German Year Book. Whether the publishers will heed their protest and removo the German Colonial So ciety from the list of Germn Na-' tional Societies" is at yet unknown.
