(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Many of the perpetrators of the anti-Jewish excesses in Transylvania last December received punishment at the hands of the authorities, as a result of the changed attitude of the Roumanian government, a survey made by the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here shows.

Of those arrested in Bucharest, 30 students were sentenced to from ten days to six months and permanently expelled from the universities and 380 were expelled from the universities for the year 1928. In Jassy 15 students were sentenced to from 15 days to 3 months and permanently expelled; in Cluj, 8 students were sentenced to from ten days to six months. Fifteen tradesmen, waiters and professional men were sentenced to from 15 days to six months. Three prefects, including one from Cluj and one from Oradeamare were removed, and also a director, an inspector, a commissioner and two sub-commissars of the police.
