The anti-Semitic disturbances in Bessarabia are of a much more serious character than was at first realized, writes the “Politika”, Roumanian newspaper of Bucharest. “The attacks on the Jews were organized by Bolsheviks who were seeking to compromise our country in the eyes of the world. The Government is aware of these intrigues by our enemies and will issue a communique on the subject.”

The same paper states that General Averescu, the Prime Minister, is greatly disturbed at the development of the student movement. The Premier has had a conference with the military and civil authorities, and has expressed to them his determination to put a stop to these organized excesses.
