The anti-Semitic riots of Hungarian students were a matter of discussion in the Hungarian parliament at its last session of Friday. During the debate, the democratic deputy, Pakots, raised the question, stating that forty terrorists in the Budapest University attack every Jewish student and that certain professors support the excesses. “It is unheard of that Count Klebelsberg, the Minister of Education, should negotiate with these terrorists on the question of the numerus clausus,” Deputy Pakots declared.

Secretary of State Petri, replying to the remarks of Deputy Pakots, stated that the government has taken protective measures and that in case new disturbances occur, the university will be closed.
