Download PDF for this date

On the basis of a resolution declaring that the sentiment in the country favors the Christian Students’ League, which is now in convention, the League today decided to actively particpate in the coming parliamentary election by placing its own tickets in the field in all districts and thus conduct a well-organized campaign to obtain power in parliament.

The convention also decided to publish a daily newspaper in Bucharest and to hold three regional conferences, one each in Bukowina, Bessarabia and Transylvania. Professor Alexander Cuza, chairman of the convention, today wired to King Carol complaining against the so-called suppression of the anti-Semitic movement. On behalf of the Christian Students’ League, Professor Cuza demanded freedom to hold meetings. congress, which will last several days, has delegates from every city in Roumania, and is being presided over by Professor Alexander Cuza, anti-Semitic leader and member of parliament.

The agenda of the congress includes a discussion of further anti-Jewish tactics and plans to influence the trial of Zelea Codreanu, anti-Semitic student leader whose trial for inciting to pogroms will begin this week. Similar regional conferences of the anti-Semitic students will be held throughout the country, the congress decided today.

While the anti-Semitic students were meeting here the police made a number of arrests in connection with the bomb that was thrown Sunday into the house of Menachem Rubinger, a Jew from Dorna. Among those who have been arrested is a driver who took Danila and Nicolai Totu, notorious anti-Semitic agitators, who were found in Dorna after the bomb-throwing but who later escaped, from Dorna to a neighboring town.

The information furnished by the driver gave little help to the police in their search for the escaped bomb-throwers. Instructions were telegraphed today to every police station in the country to be on the watch for Danila and Totu. The state’s attorney from Kimpolung has arrived in Dorna to undertake an investigation.
