In describing the present situation in Roumania. Mr. Wolf stated that the Roumanian government still declines to restrain the vicious anti-Semitic propaganda. The numerus clausus is being made permanent in the country. The last Jewist student was forced to leave the University of Transylvania. The new baccalaureate regulations for graduation from high school make it certain that no Jew will obtain his diploma permitting him to enter college.
