Train Service to Bessarabia Halted

A United Press dispatch from Bucharest today said that the Government, acting to suppress the flight of the Jews and avoid further clashes such as reportedly occurred at Galati, had suspended train service to Bessarabia. The U.P. said the rush of Jews into Bessarabia and away from Rumania assumed “almost panicky proportions when the Russian Legation fixed a six-day time limit for the exodus.

It was forecast that Rumania’s renunciation of the British guarantee of support against Germany would accelerate the exodus of Jews, the U.P. said.
