Vayda Voevod May Resign

Resentment at the government search made last week of the house of his chief aide and a feeling that he has been insulted because the police arrested Tazladanu without consulting him is expected to lead to the resignation within the next few days of Dr. Alexander Vayda Voevod, minister of the interior, according to reports current here. In an endeavor to prevent Dr. Vayda Voevod from resigning, Premier Maniu is reported to have cancelled his vacation for a second time and returned to Bucharest.

In the meantime it is announced that Zelea Codreanu, anti-Semitic leader who is now in jail, will be tried within a few weeks on the criminal charge of inciting one element of the population against another by means of proclamations and death threats to his opponents. It is learned that Codreanu’s followers have sent letters to a number of government officials saying that if he is found guilty they will revenge themselves even to the point of murdering his political foes.
