An official report of the lynching last week of two Jews in the city of Miskolc and the murder of a Jewish member of the secret police there says that a “fascist mob” utilized a protest by iron workers against the black market for anti-Semitic ends.

The Cabinet Council is scheduled to discuss the outbreak tomorrow and decide on what measures should be taken. Reports from Miskolc reaching here today differ as to the situation there. One says that everything is quiet and the workers have returned to their jobs, while another says that a Jewish journalist was beaten up yesterday.

Meanwhile, the death toll in the Kunmadaras pogrom, which occurred in May, has risen to four, with the death yesterday of one of the injured Jews.
