The anti-Semitic students are celebrating the recent victory of the Club of the Christian League, through whose efforts ten Roumanian anti-Semites, headed by Professor Cuza, were elected to parliament in the recent elections. In connection with this they are also preparing to intensify their propaganda for the enactment of the numerus clausus in Roumania.

A crowd of students gathered outside the Club of the Christian League in the Calea Victorie to celebrate the success of the League in the parliamentary elections. Professor Cuza, the leader of the League, accompanied by the other nine anti-Semitic deputies, was given a boisterous reception.

A spokesman on behalf of the Christian students of the Bucharest University expressed gatitude to Professor Cuza for his work on behalf of the anti-Jewish demands of the students. “We are convinced,” he said, “that your stand in Parliament will result in winning our just fight for the enforcement of the numerus clausus, to keep the Jews out of the universities.”

Professor Cuza, in his reply, called upon the students to continued their fight against the Jews. The manifestation passed without any anti-Jewish excesses.

A Congress of the students of Roumanian nationality at all the universities in the country has been called for August 8th at Monastir-Putna in the Bukowina. The purpose of the Congress, it is stated, is to consolidate the successes gained by the students already and to decide on measures to carry on their anti-Semitic propaganda.

The new Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago, III., was dedicated recently. Morris Kurtzon, Mrs. Henry Neufield, the chairman, Dr. Maurice Lewison, head of the medical staff; Louis M. Cahn, executive director of the Jewish Charities and Jacob M. Loeb were speakers.
