Jewish School Question in Roumania Acute, Leaders Tell Maniu

The Jewish school question in Roumania was described as very acute at the present moment by the representatives of the Club of Jewish Deputies in the Roumanian parliament who were received yesterday in a new audience by Prime Minister Maniu.

The Jewish deputies urged the Prime Minister to take speedy action for the settlement of the Jewish school question, as well as making available the government subventions for the Jewish students’ homes. They emphasized that the Jewish population would like to see this matter taken care of before the adjournment of parliament, as it finds it increasingly difficult to maintain the schools from private Jewish funds at a time when the government itself recognizes it to be a state obligation.

The Prime Minister, it was reported, reassured the Jewish deputies of his intention to settle the matter as speedily as possible, but added that the payment of the subventions cannot be effected before the month of May for budgetary reasons.
