Download PDF for this date

A special delegation of Hitlerist students came from Germany to attend the Conference of the Christian Students’ League of Roumania, attended by about 4,000 delegates and visitors from all the University towns of the country, which has just been held at Sibiu (Hermannstadt), in the Province of Transylvania.

The Hitlerist students were led by Carl Motz, who in his speech predicted that very soon Germany would be governed by Hitler and Roumania by Cuza.

The Conference was preceded by a special service in the Cathedral of Sibiu, conducted by the Metropolitan Balan, the head of the Church in Transylvania, who was afterwards elected Honorary President of the Conference. After the service the students filed past the representatives of the State and Church.

The Mayor of the town, Dr. Goris, the Carrison Commandant, Colonel Paraianu, and the representatives of the professors and teachers of the Sibiu district, as well as representatives of the Cuzist League and of various student bodies delivered speeches of greeting.

The President of the Conference, the student Tanasescu, welcomed the leader of the Hitlerist delegation, Carl Motz, as the representative of Hitler and amid great applause from the gathering thanked them for coming from Germany to help them in Roumania in working out a solution of the vital problems of the Roumanian students.

A banquet was held in the evening, at which the Metropolitan Balan, Mayor Goris and General Vasilescu Christea, the Prefect of the Department, who is the Honorary President of the Fascist Organisation “Fratia de Cruce”, delivered speeches.

The President of the Conference, Tanasescu, assured the Prefect that there would be complete order during the Conference.

Karl Motz proposed the toast of friendship between the German and the Roumanian people. The Roumanian people are fighting the same fight as Hitler in Germany, he said, and he urged the Roumanian students to engage in the same kind of activity as the National Socialists in Germany, to hasten the coming of the Cuza Government in Roumania, as there was soon going to be a Hitler Government in Germany.

Messages of greeting were sent by the Conference to Cuza and Hitler.

On the second day of the Conference Garl Motz again addressed the delegates, inviting the Roumanian students to send a delegation to the Conference of the German students which will be held in Hamburg in the new year. At the close of his speech he was congratulated by Professor Cornelia Codreanu, the father of Zelea Codreanu.

The “Cuventul” states that the Conference has not passed without some disturbances. A student has slapped the Investigating Judge of Sibiu, M. Popescu, it says, because he was conducting an investigation against two students, who had committed a breach of the peace. It is not known at the moment, it says, what was the nature of the breach of the peace.
