(J. T. A. Mall Service)

O. E. d’Avigdor Goldsmid, President of the Jewish Board of Deputies, presided at the meeting of the Board today.

The Joint Foreign Committee submitted a report on Lucien Wolfs mission to Geneva during the Eighth Session of the Assembly of the League of Nations and the Forty-sixth Session of the Council which were held concurrently in Sept. Among the matters dealt with by Mr. Wolf were the question of the Staatenlose and the Hungarian Numerus Clausus Law. No satisfactory plans have yet been proposed for remedying the position of the Staatenlose, because the question was complicated by the presence of the Minority States. Mr. Wolf advised a petition to the League under the Nationality Clauses of the Minorities Treaties.

With regard to the Numerus Clausus in Hungary, a letter was addressed to the League of Nations calling attention to the failure of Hungary to fulfil the obligations into which she entered in December 1925.

Mr. Wolf stated that in the meantime he had been informed that the Hungarian Government agreed to submit to Parliament a Bill for eliminating paragraph 3 of the Numerus Clausus Law.
