Scongrad Anti-semitic Bome Conspirators Acquitted

First Acting Lieutenant Georg Pirosko, Badislaws Simko, Nicholas Poloaenyi, Andor Fueloep, Johann Pirosko, Johann Saghy and Rochas Saghy, who were accused of throwing the bomb at the Jewish Charity Ball at Scongrad on December 26, 1923, were acquitted today by the court.

The trial, which lasted for several days, caused great interest in many circles, owing to the fact that it was charged that this throwing was a part of the anti-Semitic conspiracy by the Awakening Magyars.
