(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A delegation representing Jewish students in all Roumanian universities appeared before the Roumanian Minister of Education, asking that the government grant a state subsidy to the Jewish Student Homes on a proportionate basis to that given other student homes. The memorandum was presented in the name of the entire Roumanian Jewish student body. The memorandum also asked abolition of restrictions against Jewish students, particularly in the Medical schools of the universities.

Minister Costacescu received the delegation cordially and promised to give consideration to the memorandum. The student delegation also appeared before the Minister of the Interior and the Minister of Commerce, as well as Premier Maniu’s state secretary. They were accorded a friendly reception by all.
