(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The protest of Palestine Jewry against the continued anti-Jewish excesses in Roumania will find expression in a boycott against Roumanian products and Roumanian steamship companies. A movement in this direction has made itself apparent.

Roumanian commercial firms have recently made an attempt to interest Palestine buyers in Roumanian goods. A Roumanian trade exhibition was arranged to be held shortly in various Palestine towns.

The Palestine League of Nations Society has sent a cable to the International of the League of Nations Societies at Brussels, protesting against the anti-Jewish excesses in Roumania.
