Count Klebelsberg Makes This Statement in Hungarian Parliament (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A demand that the government take drastic steps against the anti-Jewish excesses organized by the anti-Semitic students because of the proposed modification of the numerus clausus law was voiced today in parliamest by Deputy Rassay.

Deputy Rassay declared in his address that the excesses cannot be tolerated in view of the fact that the number of anti-Semitic students is small in comparison to the general university attendance and that the entire work at the universities is disturbed by the outbreaks of this minority.

Count Klebelsberg, minister of Education, in reply to Deputy Rassay declared that if severe measures are taken it will make the situation worse. “Although the anti-Semitic students in the universities are only about thirty per cent, of the general number, the situation in the universities would become worse if very severe punishment will be imposed upon them for participating in the outbreaks,” the Education Minister stated. “However, order will be restored anyway,” he declared.
