Duel with Jewish Deputy Postponed

June 11, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The duel which had been arranged between Paul Sandor, the Jewish Deputy to the Hunngarian Parlhament and the anti-Semitic Deputy Besnard has been postponed to give Beenard a chance to get in trim once more.

Besnard needs recuperation because of another duel which he fought yesterday with Rassy, a deputy who has been very friendly to the Jewish interests. Besnard’s markmanship was on a par with his reasoning on Jewish questions. He was severely wounded.
