Roumanian Minister of Education Holds out No Hope of Reopening of Hebrew School Closed Down in Bessa

The Minister of Education, speaking to-day with a deputation headed by deputy Landau, the Jewish representative from Kishineff and Senator Rosenhaupt, of Soroca, held out no hope of the reopening of the Hebrew Tarbut School, which has been closed down at Soroca, on the charge that it is a nest of Communism. He agreed, finally, however, to have a new enquiry made into the charges of Communism brought against the school.

Deputy Theodor Fischer, one of the members of the Club of Jewish Deputies, also protested to-day against the closing of the school to the Under-Secretary of the Presidium of Ministers, M. Tillea, who assured Deputy Fischer that he fully realised the importance of the question, and promised him that he would go carefully into the matter and would see that it should be settled satisfactorily.
