(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A bill to suppress secret societies in Hungary has been drafted by the government, it was learned here today.

In January, following the discovery of the counterfeiting plot, the government issued an order suspending the activities of all secret societies. The societies, however, including the Awakening Magyars and all anti-Semitic and terroristic organizations, did not heed the government’s order.
