(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An interesting trial which promises to reveal the motives and origins of the recent anti-Jewish excesses in the Hungarian universities will take place soon, as the result of a decision by the court of the Hungarian Senate.

The court decided to lift the immunity guaranteed to members of the Upper Chamber, and permit Count Teleki to start proceedings against Senator Josef Veszi, editor-in-chief of the “Pester Lloyd.” Mr. Veszi, who recently clebrated his seventieth birthday and the fiftieth anniversary of his widely known paper, was appointed member of the Upper House for life by an order of Admiral Horthy, Regent of Hungary. This honor was conferred upon him by the Regent on the occasion of his seventieth birthday.

The suit is the result of an article published in the “Pester Lloyd” accusing Count Teleki of instigating the anti-Semitic excesses in the universities. The Senate court urged the Senate to lift the immunity.
