In Hungary . .

In Hungary . . .

According to reports from Vienna, the Hungarian secret police has begun to remove all non-comunist professors from the universities and to check into student's political convictions. Many students were arrested shortly before the universities were reopened at the beginning of February. Even well-Prof. Georgy Lukacs, himself a Communist since 1919 but a Nagyite, has been spirited away to Rumania under "protective custody". Wellknown in the West as a literary critic (Thomas Mann said: "Europe's best") and a World Peace Council member, his release is being demanded by students everywhere.
