Turkish Government Will Not Enforce Immediately Barring of French in Jewish Schools

The order of the Angora Government barring immediately the instruction of French in the Jewish schools in Turkey, will not be enforced, according to promises made today by the Director of Public Education to a deputation of the Jewish School Directors, which appeared before him. The deputation pointed out to the Director of Public Education the injurious effects to the worldly education of the pupils that the immediate carrying out of this order would have.

The Director then promised that he would recommend to the Ministry of Education at Angora a change in the order, making the barring of French gradually, in the course of a period of four years.
