Israel Cohen, secretary of the World Zionist Organization, on his way from Oradeamare to Budapest was detained at the frontier station by Roumanian police who seized his papers and correspondence. The officials declared that they were politically valuable and must be examined.

Mr. Cohen reported the incident to the British legation here. The legation is taking steps to recover the documents.
