(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

The Labor Syndicates here held a mass demonstration to deal with the question of the continued anti-Jewish disturbances at the University.

A resolution adopted by the meeting says: “We protest against the barbaric attacks carried out by the Fascisti anti-Semitic bands on the Jewish students, in which we perceive a hooligan aggression against the freedom of education. The working class of the capital condemns the students for allowing their enthusiasm to be exploited by our oligarchs.”

M. Tartarescu, the Secretary of State of the Ministry of the Interior, replying to a deputation of Jewish students headed by the President of the Union of Roumanian Jews, Dr. Fildermann, and the President of the Bucharest Jewish community, M. Bercovici, said that he would do what was possible, but added, “I can do nothing. The Police and the Gendarmerie are anti-Semitic.”
