Download PDF for this date

Alarming news of anti-Jewish excesses were received here today from Roumania. At the Universities of Bucharest, Jassy, Klausenburg and Czernowitz excesses against Jewish students have been going on for several days. Four Jewish students were wounded at the University of Bucharest.

King Ferdinand is reported to have witnessed some of the excesses personally and issued instructions to restore order. Nevertheless, excesses continue. Jewish students are being driven out of the lecture halls at the universities. Deputy Busor introduced an interpellation in Parliament today and read a letter of Prof. Cantacucina, according to whom Prof. Cusa of the Jassy University was the initiator of the disturbance. The Minister of Education admitted the guilt of several professors.

It was stated that Prof. Cusa delivered a lecture urging the Roumanian students to commit the excesses. Similar disturbances are reported from Temesvar, Oradeamara, Czernowitz and Klausenburg. The Dean of the University of Jassy has resigned because of the passivity of the authorities in not suppressing the disturbances.
