The modification of the numerus clausus contained in the recent ordinance of Minister of Education, Count Klebelsberg, has met with the satisfaction of Hungarian Jews, according to a statement issued to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency by Mr. Lederer, president of the Budapest Kehillah.

According to Mr. Lederer’s statement, further modifications of the numerus clausus are expected within two or three weeks. These modifications are to prepare the way for the complete abolition of the restrictive law. The abolition of this law is only a matter of time. Jewry abroad can confidently leave the matter to Hungarian Jews. “We desire no foreign intervention,” the statement declared.
