(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A new era in Roumanian Jewish relations is being heralded here following the victory of the Liberal party in the national parliamentary elections just concluded.

The elections were marked by the fact that Roumanian and Jewish voters were united in the support of the Liberal party on the basis of an agreement concluded between the Bratianu government and the Union of Roumanian Jews.

Dr. William Filderman, president of the Union, in an announcement issued today, declared that Minister of Education Angelescu has pledged that no further student disturbances will occur. “The government will not tolerate them any longer,” he said.

It was also learned today that in an audience granted by Prime Minister Bratianu to Dr. Filderman, the Premier told the Jewish leader that “hitherto you have been loyal opponents. I hope that henceforth you will be loyal collaborators.”
