Principles Proclaimed at Fetes Should Be Applied to Daily Life, Roumania Told

The principle of equality of the citizens of Roumania proclaimed last week during the greater Roumanian celebrations at Alba Julia must be applied in the daily life of the country, in relation to the minorities and the Jewish population.

This argument was made by Deputy Theodore Fisher who delivered an address in Parliament on the Jewish question when the school question was debated. he reminded the Government of its promises in regard to the Jewish school question in Roumania. These promises, he said, have not been fulfilled yet. He asked that the Government restore the public rights to the Jewish schools, that these schools in which Roumanian language and literature are taught be given state subsidies on an equal basis with similar schools and that Jewish pupils attending public schools be freed from duties which involve violation of the Sabbath.
