(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Negotiations declared to have bright prospects between the Maniu government and the Jewish groups for an election alliance are being continued, states a communique issued by the Council of Ministers.

The negotiations are principially being carried on with the Zionist group. Complications have arisen in Old Roumania because of the decision of the Union of Roumanian Jews, a non-Zionist, conservative organization, to press for the submission of its own list of candidates. This makes it difficult for the government party to satisfy both the Zionists and the Union of Roumanian Jews, states the communique.

The guarantee for free elections given by the Manin government will be broadly taken advantage of by the anti-Semitic Cuzist party. Extensive measures for a nation-wide election campaign are being taken by the Cuzists who hope to be able to elect 15 candidates. At a meeting of the Cuza party leaders their candidates only to the lower house and none to the Senate.

The sum of 250,000 lei was paid out by the city government of Czernowitz to Jewish welfare institutions of that city. Deviating from previous policies, this time no discrimination was displayed against any institution because of its group or party afliliation.
