See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A united anti-Jewish front was created today in Rumania when Prof. Alexander Cuza, notorious anti-Jewish leader and president of the League of Christian National Defense, joined hands with Prof. Octavius Goga, leader of the Rumanian Fascist organization, for the purpose of organizing a National Christian Party.

The two professors, though united in their views against Jews, had previously been unable to find ground for common action. Goga, though conducting anti-Jewish propaganda, always refused to join the anti-Jewish league of which Cuza is the leader.

The agreement reached today between Prof. Cuza and Prof. Goga provides that the Anti-Jewish League for Christian National Defense is to be amalgamated with the party led by Prof. Goga into one body, the main object of which will be to further the demands for anti-Jewish restrictions in Rumania.


The amalgamation reached between the two anti-Semitic professors will be of great assistance to the anti-Jewish propaganda conducted by Dr. Vaida-Voevod, former premier of Rumania, it was pointed out here today. While Dr. Vaida-Voevod does not associate himself with the two professors, he will nevertheless enjoy the full support of the projected united anti-Semitic party as far as his anti-Jewish demands are concerned.

The opinion was also expressed today that the accord between Prof. Cuza and Prof. Goga may enable Dr. Vaida-Voevod to realize his ambition of again becoming the premier of Rumania.
