The Jews of Hungary may collect funds for helping financially the Jewish students forced by the operation of the numerus clausus in Hungary to continue their studies in foreign countries. The Budapest Central Court gave this decision today, acquitting the President of the Budapest Jewish community. Dr. Lederer, and the Vice-President, Deputy Vaszonyi, on the charge of having violated the law by raising funds for this purpose.

Dr. Lederer in testifying said that the Jewish communal organization of Budapest regards it as its duty to enable the Jewish students forced to leave their native country because of the operation of the numerus clausus to complete their education in other countries.

The funds raised by the Jewish community for this purpose, which were confiscated when the charge was brought, have now been released.
