Negotiations To Be Held
To Regulate Status Of
All Poles In Germany
BERLIN, Oct. 29 -(P)- German
authorities called a' halt tonight to
the mass expulsion of Polish Jews
pending the opening of negotiations
Monday to regulate the status of all
Polish citizens in Germany.
The action was taken simultaneous-
ly with an announcement in Warsaw
that Poland had abandoned plans for
retaliatory measures against Germans
residing there.
More than 20,000 Polish Jews had
been herded on both sides of the bor-
der by Germany in a counter move to
a new Polish citizenship law which
Berlin authorities feared would leave
thousands of these citizens stranded
in the Reich without passports.
The eleventh hour decision to halt
the movement of Polish Jews toward
the border came after Polish repre-
sentatives told German authorities
they had misinterpreted the new citi-
zenship regulations of the neighbor-
ing republic.
