(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The anti-Semitic students in Roumania have no intention to discontinue their propaganda and activities, according to resolutions adoted at the congress of the Roumanian anti-Semitic student body held in Kloster-Neamtz.

The only departure that was made is that the organization declared its independence of the older anti-Semitic organizations.

It appears from information obtained now that during the sessions of the congress many riots took place when the various factions of the organization clashed on matters of principle. The bones of contention were Cuza and Codreanu, many of the students siding with them, while many were opposed to their leadership.

The main issue that agitated the Roumanian anti-Semitic students was the question whether they are to follow Codreanu and establish a group that would indulge in violence or to follow Cuza in a policy of a “peaceful revolution.”

The question was debated at a secret session where proposals were taken up as to how to conduct the fight against Jewry and as to how anti-Semitism is to be instilled in the masses. It is understood that the final outcome of the session was that a resolution was adopted stating that the student body organizes itself on the basis of the National Christian anti-Semitic doctrine of Alexander Cuza in an independent organization. The purose of this organization is to “solve the Jewish problem.”
