Judge Mack Returns from Europe; Says Intervention of U.S. Halted Vienna Riots

Judge Julian W. Mack, Zionist leader, returned to this country yesterday on the “Rex” from a European tour which took him to Vienna at the time the anti-Jewish excesses occurred at the University of Vienna, during which four American students were injured.

Judge Mack is credited with making the representations to the American Minister in Vienna, G. B. Stockton, which led to the intervention of the American government.

The intervention of the American government, according to Judge Mack, brought to an end the anti-Semitic excesses. He expressed the hope that the riots would not be renewed, in a statement made to a representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The economic situation of European Jewry is very bad, while the economic crisis has been augmented by political discrimination, he said.

Judge Mack entrained for San Francisco immediately upon his arrival to preside at the Circuit Court of Appeals there.
