French Resident in Tunisia to Be Replaced It is Rumored

The French government is contemplating energetic measures to combat anti-Semitism in Tunisia which in recent months has expressed itself in a series of Arab outbreaks against the Jewish population, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns.

The French Resident, General Manceron, will be replaced, it is understood, and other changes in the French administration in North Africa may be awaited.

In this connection consideration is being given to the naturalization of Moroccan Jews in order to exempt them from the despotic sovereignty of the Sultan of Morocco. Under present conditions the Jews suffer in many ways.

It is generally recognized, however, that the task presents difficulties and that delecate handling is required.
