(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

New anti-Jewish attacks in Transylvania are reported in despatches to the Hungarian press today.

According to the reports, Jewish passengers at the railway station of Marmaros-Sziget were maltreated, the Roumanian students pulling the beards and side-curls of Orthodox Jews. The aged Moses Widder and a young man whose identity was not learned were serlously injured. A furniture factory owned by Jews was destroyed in the riot in the town.
