(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

English Jewish leaders made clear their attitude toward the Roumanian government and its discriminatory policy against Jews when an attempt was made here to pave the way for a thirty million pound loan for the Roumanian government.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns from reliable sources that representatives of the Roumanian government visited London recently for the purpose of arranging for a thirty million pound loan. Several Jewish leaders of finance and men influential in civic life, including Samuel Finburgh, M. P., were approached by the Roumanian government representatives, seeking their support of the project. It is understood that the reply given by these leaders was that as long as the anti-Jewish persecutions in Roumania continue, they will be unable to assist the Roumanian government in floating a loan in Great Britain. Furthermore, they will oppose such a move.
