Minister of Education in Hungary Will Refuse to Permit Numerus Clausus

February 5, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

While Hungarian Jewry as a whole is welcoming the participation of Count Kuno Klebelsberg, Hungarian Minister of Education, in the festive session of the kehillah on the occasion of the 50th birthday of the “Egyenloezeg,” organ of Hungarian Jewry, as the first official expression of the government’s attitude towards the Jewish community, some Jewish radicals are the opinion that the main object of the government’s friendliness is to counteract the statements being made by Count Michael Karolyi in the United States, where the first president of the Hungarian Republic has been attacking the Bethlen regime.

Whatever the reasons may be for the government’s action the immediate result is that Count Klebelsberg has definitely declined to permit numerus clausus in the universities and has promised to do all he can to reestablish a national religious united front.
