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. NEW ANTI-JEWISH LAWS IN

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

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

Berlin: (By I. J. P. B.) Tha execu

the publishers will heed their protest
