Anti-semitism Prevailing in Austrian Colleges, Says Mayor Seitz of Vienna

A bitter complaint against the anti-Semitism ruling the universities and colleges of Austria was voiced today by Mayor Seitz of Vienna, in a speech delivered in the Austrian Parliament.

He attacked the influence of the Hakenkreuzler in the universities and stated that the best minds and the greatest scholars

are being barred from the institutions of learning in Austria, only because of the fact that they are Jews. He cited the names of the physicist, Horovita, the social hygienist, Peller and the chemist, Feigl.
