Rumanian Gypsies Join Forces with Anti-semites; Seek Music Monopoly

SEEKING A MUSICAL MONOPOLY, RUMANIA’S GYPSIES HAVE JOINED THE ANTI-SEMITIC NATIONAL CHRISTIAN PARTY HEADED BY PROFESSORS ALEXANDER CUZA AND OCTAVIUS GOGA, IT WAS DISCLOSED HERE TODAY. PART OF THE GYPSIES’ PLATFORM IS A BOYCOTT ON JEWISH MUSICIANS IN FAVOR OF GYPSIES.

THE ROMANY PEOPLE’S ADHERENCE TO THE ANTI-SEMITIC MOVEMENT WAS REVEALED IN TZARA NOASTRA, ORGAN OF THE NATIONAL CHRISTIAN PARTY, WHICH PUBLISHED A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT IN GYPSY LANGUAGE ANNOUNCING THE MERGER AND DECLARING THE GYPSIES TOOK THIS STEP TO SHOW THEY ARE LOYAL CITIZENS.

THE MOVE IS REGARDED AS CONSIDERABLY STRENGTHENING THE ANTI-SEMITIC MOVEMENT, SINCE THE GYPSIES ARE A VOTING FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH IN THIS COUNTRY. FURTHERMORE, THEY HAVE GREAT POWER AS PROPAGANDISTS, SINCE THEY HAVE PRACTICALLY A MONOPOLY OF SELLING NEWSPAPERS IN THE STREETS, AND VILLAGE ORCHESTRA SINGERS ARE EXCLUSIVELY GYPSIES.

THE RECENT GYPSY CONGRESS HERE TOOK A SIGNIFICANT STEP WHEN IT REQUESTED THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE MEASURES AGAINST JEWISH MUSICIANS, WHO, THE CONGRESS DECLARED, CREATE UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG THE GYPSIES, “THE REAL EXPONENTS OF MUSICAL ART.”

THE ANTI-SEMITIC NEWSPAPER PORUNCA VREMI PUBLISHED AN EDITORIAL TODAY URGING RUMANIANS TO BOYCOTT PLACES OF AMUSEMENT WITH MODERN ORCHESTRAS AND LISTEN ONLY TO GYPSY MUSIC.

MEMBERS OF THE FASCIST RUMANIAN IRON GUARD LAUNCHED A SUDDEN ATTACK ON JEWISH PEDESTRIANS IN THE STREETS OF CZERNOWITZ. ONE OF THEIR VICTIMS, A SEVENTY-YEAR-OLD JEWISH MERCHANT NAMED BRODMAN, WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL, SERIOUSLY INJURED. THE IRON GUARDISTS ESCAPED.
