Download PDF for this date

A public warning to Julius Goemboes, premier of Hungary, to abstain from introducing an anti-Semitic policy was sounded here today by Count Stephen Bethlen, leader of the government party, of which Goemboes is a member.

Addressing a public gathering, Count Bethlen declared that the country does not want a revival of anti-Semitism. The leader of the government party warned against the consequences which Hungary may suffer if the government embarks on an anti-Jewish policy.

Premier Goemboes, speaking at a meeting in Szeged later in the day, stated that religion is a personal matter and must not become a political weapon. He denounced the activities which the separatists are pursuing on the basis of religious differences. This statement is believed to be an indication that Premier Goemboes is taking the warning of Count Bethlen seriously.
