Little surprise is expressed in official circles over the bomb outrage in Chongrad which ended in the death of one girl and the injury of over forty others at a dance arranged by a Jewish women’s society.

Deputy Schardel who is also Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture told newspaper men here that Chongrad has long been the scene of anti-Semitic agitation.

Magyar leaders as Deputy Ulain, Lengvai, Melchior and others visited the town for anti-Semitic agitation. Recently the Government found it advisable to prohibit all assemblages in the city.

Further details of the bomb outrage show that the explosive was hurled while a charity ball arranged by the Union of Jewish Women was in progress. There were 300 guests present. The bomb which was thrown from the street exploded during a quadrille shortly after midnight. The explosion of the hand-grenade caused havoc, resulting in a panic among the guests who made a rush for the exits. One young girl was killed outright, thirteen were seriously injured and thirty received slight wounds.

Nine of the Awakening Magyars suspected of the crime were taken into custody.
