Proposal of Spain for International University Not Accepted

The proposal of the Spanish Government to establish an international university in Spain, with special provisions for the Jewish students of Eastern Europe, who are affected by the percentage limitation on their numbers in the universities (Numerus Clausus), was considered today by the sub-committee on Inter-University Relations of the Intellectual Commission of the League of Nations, under the chairmanship of Prof. Gilbert Murray, and with the participation of Prof. Colman, Director of the American University Union of Europe.

The sub-committee did not accept Spain’s proposal. The feeling was expressed that at present it would be impossible to establish an official international university although steps should be taken immediately to encourage co-operation between the universities of the different countries by a frequent exchange of professors and students.
