Further reports received here from Budapest confirmed early despatches relating details of the anti-Jewish excesses in Debreczin on Monday.

The excesses lasted all day and resulted in injuries to many Jewish students, including one who is a United States citizen. Martin Rainer is the American injured. When attacked he showed his American passport, which his assailants partly tore. It was stated that the American Minister to Budapest will make representations to the Budapest government.

The despatches from Debreczin charge that the police failed to intervene in time. Its action came only at the hour when Jewish stores were threatened with being plundered. The University of Debreczin was closed due to the riots.

Despatches from Budapest relate of new disorders in the colleges, where several Jewish students were attacked and injured.
