Government and academic circles are understood to be concerned over an article by Prof. Charles Bonglee, sociologist of Sorbonne, who recently visited Roumania and published an article in the Roumanian “Quotidien”, scoring Roumania for her persecution of the Jews.

“It is indisputable”, Prof. Bonglee writes, “that the Jews have been brutally driven forth from the universities by their Roumanian colleagues. I do not like to refer to the subject, and I do not intend to deny there are difficulties in the university question, but fundamentals exist which must not be violated and there are methods which must not be used or endured if Roumania wihes to be a modern nation.”
