Download PDF for this date

A request for a denial of the communique issued by the Roumanian legation in Washington declaring that the reports of anti-Semitic excesses at the Roumanian Students’ Congress had been exaggerated was made yesterday by the Jewish Deputy Michael Landau in an open letter to the “Unser Zeit,” addressed to the Foreign Secretary Mironescu. Deputy Laudau declared that the author of the communique should _he punched for giving false information which destroys confidence in the government’s communiques.

He also declared in his letter that he had not questioned the students’ excesses before the Congress wasffeheld. Deputy Landau says his interpellation was made after the Congress had been held. He said that he did not disapprove because the government had permitted the Congress to be held, but because it had sent congratulations to the Congress which had adopted a resolution demanding numerus clauses, “something affecting millions of Jewish citizens who loyally fulfill their duties to the state.”
