(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The anti-Jewish excesses in Roumania were taken up at the monthly meeting of the Board of Jewish Deputies held here yesterday. The Joint Foreign Committee of the Board of Jewish Deputies and the Anglo- Jewish Association has received no appeal from the Roumanian Jews, Lucien Wolf reported. The Joint Foreign Committee has considered the reports of the pogroms. The Joint Foreign Committee is of the opinion that sufficient evidence exists to take action and to bring the case before the League of Nations. The Roumanian government ought to be communicated with that the anti-Jewish agitation constitutes a danger of the infraction of Articles 2 and 12 of the minorities treaty, Mr. Wolf declared.

The attention of the Joint Foreign Committee has been especially engaged by the brutal murder of the Jewish student, David Falik. There is no doubt that the pogroms are due to the organized efforts of the followers of Alexander Cuza, whose inflammatory activities would not be tolerated in any civilized state. Much blame rests with the Roumanian government, owing to its failure to restrain, in accordance with Roumanian law, the criminal propaganda of Cuza. The Roumanian government has been ostentatiously patronizing to Cuza, Mr. Wolf declared.
