Split Looms in Rumanian Anti-jewish Coalition

A split in the National Christian bloc, comprising the three major anti-Semitic parties, was threatened today when dissension arose between two of its leaders on a question of future organization.

Prof. Octavius Goga, Fascist leader, pressed for establishment of an ultra-nationalist coalition, reportedly in response to suggestions from high quarters, including the Rumanian Front.

The Iron Guard leader, Prof. Alexander Cuza, opposed the plan, threatening to resign unless the National Christian bloc alone took power.
