August 18, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Considerable disquietude has been aroused in Jewish and governmental circles by the report in the Bucharest paper, “Cuvantul,” that King Carol’s coronation, scheduled for September, has been postponed until the Spring of 1931. when the peace of the country will be assured it is hoped by an improvement in economic conditions. The “Cuvantul,” whose authority for the report is reliably informed court circles, says that the King is not inclined to go through with the coronation ceremony in view of the worries that are disturbing the government and oppressing the population.

This is seen as an indication that the peace of the country, and particularly the immediate oppression of the anti-Semitic disturbances are uncertain for the near future, and the Jewish population is consequently worried.
