(J.T. A. Mall Service)

The “Az Est” Hungarian newspaper here, publishes an interview with Lord Rothermere who is in the United States, in which he warns Hungary against religious, national or racial persecution. Such intolerance and persecution, Lord Rothermere said in the interview, can only result in killing the hope of a restoration of Hungarian national integrity.

Lord Rothermere draws attention to the widespread movement which is going on in the United States in protest against the excesses committed on Hungarian territory and points out that any fresh disturbances in Hungary would be dangerous to Hungarian hopes.

In view of the great admiration which is felt in Hungary for Lord Rothermere because of his important campaign for the restoration of the territory severed from Hungary after the war. it is hoped that his warning will have a sobering effect on the anti-Semitic organizations in Hungary and will put a stop to their anti-Jewish agitation.

A gathering of 400 of the Jewish women of Brooklyn was held at the Brooklyn Jewish Center. Those assembled pledged themselves to devote their efforts to the cause of Jewish education. The meeting was held under the auspices of the Eastern Parkway section of “Ivriah,” the women’s division of the Jewish Education Association.
