Download PDF for this date

Representatives of the anti-Semitic sections of the student body throghout Roumania have handed the Minister of Education Anghelescu an ultimatum threatening a general walkout in the universities in the event the Government fails to immediately enforce the percentage norm against Jewish students.

A secret circular urging open warfare against Labor and Jews, distributed broadcast by the Roumanian Fascisti, is published by the AURORA, one of the liberal Bucharest dailies. Two things particularly urged in this circular are:

That all arrivals in Roumania since the year 1916 be immediately expelled from the country; that native Roumanians seize all industry and commerce, a large proportion of which is alleged to be in the hands of Jews.
