See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The investigation into the attempt to assassinate Dr. Constantin Angelescu, assistant minister of the interior, has thus far established that the anti-Semitic agitators received their funds from secret funds of several of the government ministries. The ministries concerned explained, however, that the money was given for cultural activities among students.

The Roumanian Student Congress which was to open August 8 at Kuprian near Kishinev was prohibited today by the government upon the request of the Jewish Parliamentary Club. This ruling also bans the contemplated march of 5,000 students through Bessarabia at the conclusion of the congress.

That the investigating authorities are not objective in their probe in the township of Barlacena was charged today in a memorandum submitted by Senator Meyer Ebner to Minister of Justice Junian and to the attorney general. Senator Ebner points out facts showing that the state’s attorney in Suceava, who is leading the investigation in Barlacena, is absolutely prejudiced and pays insufficient attention to the serious events which have occured in Barlacena.

In the meantime the Borscha relief committee has issued an appeal to world Jewry saying “it is heart breaking to see how 2,500 souls, including women and children are homeless, without clothing, hungry and barefoot and also fearful for the future. Their misery is endless and must be relieved at once before Winter arrives. World Jewry can save us before it is too late”. The appeal asks that funds be sent to the Joint Distribution Committee’s bank in Klausenberg.
