(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The creation of a special Jewish corps consisting of Jewish recruits in the Roumanian army was ordered by the Roumanian General Staff.

The Jewish press severely criticizes the order of the military authorities and declares that it is a violation of the rights of Roumanian Jews guaranteed in the constitution. The creation of such a special corps would be equal to the establishment of a ghetto in the army, the newspapers state.
