As the final returns of the Senate elections held last Sunday are coming in, it appears likely that five Roumanian Jews will be members of the Upper House.

In addition to the ex-officio member, Rabbi Niemerower and the two Jewish Senators, Theodore Fischer and Dr. Meyer Ebner, there will be two Jewish Senators who were elected on the ticket of the National Peasant Party, the Maniu party. The Senators representing the government party will be Moses Lipstein and Dr. Rappoport.

Jewish members elected to the lower house are: Theodore Fischer and Joseph Fischer. Attorney Landau, Zionists; Dr. Jacob Pistiner, Czernowitz, Bundist; Attorney Rosenberg, Attorney Hoffman, the journalist Pagiler and Dr. Grauer, representing the National Peasant Party.
