A delegation of the DAIA, central Jewish representative body, has again called on the Minister of Interior to discuss means of checking anti-Semitic incidents during which Jews walking in the streets have been solested by Peronists.

The general impression prevailing here is that the Minister of the Interior, Felipe Urdapilleta, is sincerely interested in curbing anti-Jewish outbreaks, but the police officials do not follow his instructions.

It was reported here today that Dr. Frederice Cantoni, political boss of San Juan province and one of Peron’s key political advisers, said in a speech delivered at a recent banquet, during which he commented on anti-Jewish demonstrations carried out by pro-Peron elements, that “it is a pity that a substantial number of Jews were not killed. It would have served to frighten the others.
