(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An attempt to unify the three anti-Semitic organizations in Roumania, the Cuzist League, the league headed by Jan Codreanu, rival of Alexander Cuza, and the Legion of the Archangel Michael, was abandoned following a conference called in Focsanyi for this purpose.

After the conference Jan Codreanu declared to press representatives that the opposition to Cuza, led by him, Professor Schumulianu and Professor Cetunianu, has decided to launch a propaganda campaign. Demonstrations will be organized in all the provinces, chiefly in Focsanyi, Suceavu, Clausenberg and Arad.

The attempt to unify the three organizations failed, it was declared, because of the dictatorial attitude taken by Cuza.

Codreanu, in describing the plans for the campaign, declared: “Cuza is in his dotage. We cannot afford to lose time because of his tricks and we shall be able to manage quite well without him.”
