(J. T. A. Mail Service)

A resolution of protest against the student outbreaks in Roumania was adopted by the Congress of the World Union of Jewish youth, which has just been concluded here.

“This Congress expresses its deep regret because of the pogroms in Roumania several months back,” the resolution read. “Such occurrences, unfortunately, may be repeated, and it is therefore necessary for the World Union of Jewish Youth to raise its voice in vigorous protest and to bring the facts home to those Jews who in their own prosperity are indifferent to these things. The Congress deplores the fact that Jews give financial assistance to Governments which are responsible for pogroms. The Union will enlighten public opinion regarding the Numerus Clausus, and for this purpose will place itself in contact with various Jewish and non-Jewish organizations, which are fighting against the Numerus Clausus.”
