(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Dr. William Filderman, president of the Union of Roumanian Jews, largely responsible for the agreement with the Liberal Party, was elected to the Roumanian parliament on the Liberal ticket. Another prominent Roumanian Jew, Dr. Straucher, was elected to parliament.

As the final results of the election were established, it appears that the Liberals have gained 318 scats, the Peasants Party 54, and the minority bloc 15. The Socialist party, the Jorga party, and both sections of the anti-Semitic Christian League gained no seats. The new parliament will thus consist of Liberals, peasants and national minority representatives.

Dr. Weissenberg and Horia Carp were also elected to the Senate, a late cable reports.
