(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The festival of the Swastika, the emblem of the European anti-Semitic organizations which also signifies a revolt of the anti-Semites against the Jewish elements in the Christian religion, was declared yesterday by the Christian Leagues, the anti-Semitic organization throughout Roumania, under the leadership of Professor Alexander Cuza.

The festival coincided with the Feast of Saint Mary Magdelene when the entire population attended church. The Christian Leagues arranged for special services and meetings throughout the country, at which the population was urged to fight the Jews.
