It was stated here today that Codrianu would assume the leadership of the Hakenkreuzler student bodies in Roumania.

Simjon Argintiu, and two other peasants, Campeanu and Bejenaru, responsible for the murder of the family of the Jewish farmer Prokupez in the village of Tineschiti, Bessarabia, were arrested, despatches received from Kishineff state.

The apprehension of the murderers was due to the energetic investigation initiated by state attorney Popes and chief of police Causchogiu.
