(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

“No agitation can prevent the fulfillment of our promises to abolish the limitations for Jewish students,” declared Count Klebelsberg, Hungarian Minister of Education, in a letter published in the “Neue Freie Presse” yesterday.

“Every Hungarian knows,” Count Klebelsberg continued, “that Jewish efforts contributed to Hungary’s strength. The numerus clausus law, as well as the anti-Semitic scandals of the last week, are to be deeply regretted. Count Bethlen and I decided a long time ago to abolish the limitations against Jewish students and no agitation can prevent the fulfillment of our promises,” he declared.
