Rumanian Leader Hits at Special Minority Parties

Download PDF for this date

Speaking at a banquet here yesterday, Grigore Junian, leader of the Peasant Radical Party, condemned independent political parties formed on a basis of national minorities.

Junian, whose party recently refused to adopt an anti-Semitic platform on the insistence of Dr. Alexander Vaida-Voevod, notorious anti-Semite, referred particularly to the Jewish Party, stating that he had “always fought against a Jewish party.”

“Jews,” Junian declared, “ought to join the existing Rumanian parties according to their social categories.”
