TRUTH orREPORTS SOUGHT
flmeromcnt Ar Crgcd to Send Spe-
; clal rommlvlon to Poland to
InTcMisate Conditions.
VKW YORK. Not. . To determine
ftf truth or falflty of Honrs of Jew
lh pogromn in Poland, the Polish N
tional Department today united with
the Polish National defense committee
in a formal demand on the American
and allied rovernments to dispatch to
Poland a epeclal commission on which
the Jewish and Polish Immigration In
toe United States shall have member
ship to investigate the existing; condi
tions and report results.
"Because of their belief that reports
of antt-semitic outbreaks are certain
to react against the cause of the new
independent and united Polish state at
tHe peace table, the proposition is now
advanced for an investigation by an
Impartial inter-allied and American
commission. The Poles assert that rep
resentatives of the Jewish organiza
tions in the United States already have
petitioned the allied governments that
Poland be virtually denied a seat at
the peace table, or an opportunity to
state Its case before that tribunal and
that the situation Is critical.
The call for the appointment of a
commission was signed here today by
John F. Smulskl, Dr. K. Zurawski. Dr.
Adam Swajkart. K. Zychlinski, Alex
ander Debski and Dr. B. Kolakowskl.
.Messrs. Smulskl and Kolakowskl, rep
resenting the two Polish organizations.
explained that they had asked for the
commission with every confidence that
It' would brand as false the stories
circulated.
;"1V are firmly convinced that the
assaults on Jews which these troops
are committing are assaults which are
being charged to Poles, they said. In
short, we hone that such a commission,
when appointed, will carefully examine
the Polish rabbis in Poland, men who
are Poles but of Jewish faith, and from
their lips we expect vindication."

SYSTEMATIC DESTRUCTION IN
FACTORIES OF FRANCE TOLD.
Exploitation of Mines Said to Have
Enabled Germans to Continue
the War Four Years.
PARIS. Not. 2 (Havas.) Details
of the systematic destruction of ma
chinery in the French factories in the
Briey valley region is given by the
correspondent at Briey of Le Journal.
AH stocks of merchandise, iron ore.
cast Iron and steel were requisitioned
by German Inspectors and engineers,
the correspondent says, and then IS of
ficers and 100 men arrived to organize
the destruction of the plants. Ger
man manufacturers visited the region
and picked out certain pieces of ma
chinery which they wished placed in
their own plants, and these were ship
ped immediately to Germany.
After these selections had been made.
the demolition of blast furnaces, steam
engines, boilers, tools, gearings and
electric light fixtures, not connected
with the actual" working of the mines,
was carried out. the employes of the
plants being compelled to aid the Ger
mans in their devastation.
In the meantime, the exploitation of
the mines was kept in full swing.
Prisoners, to the number of 15,000 were
put to work with hardly any rest and
under terrible discipline. The output
of the mines was larger, than that In
peace time and, the correspondent adds,
this enabled the central powers to hold
out for four years.
When the time for the final allied
attack approached, the Germans con
centrated 500 large guns and 7000 ma
chine guns for the defense of the Briey
region, but the heroism of the allied
troops rendered these precautions use
less and the Teuton dream of universal
domination was shattered.

TURKEY SERVED AT PRISON
Prisoners Spend Thanksgiving by
Working Less Than Vsual.
Prisoners in the city and county
Jails observed Thanksgiving yesterday
by working less than usual and eating
more than usual. At the City Jail, Sec
ond and Oak streets, the menu con
sisted of turkey, celery, potatoes,
pumpkin pie and coffee, served on real
plates, and followed up with extra
cigarettes. Except for necessary clean
up work, routine duties were abolished
for the day.
At the County Jail the high cost de
prived the prisoners of turkey, just as
it deprived many a family outside, but
the menu was ample. The prisoners
had pork, potatoes, gravy, cranberry
sauce, oranges, bread and coffee.
