(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Excesses on the part of anti-Semitic students against Jewish students continued during the last few days despite the promises of the Roumanian government to stop them.

Last Wednesday the Jewish students at the University were again attacked and compelled to leave the lecture hall. When the situation grew dangerous, the Jewish students barricaded themselves in the library, and after a fight, fled to the residences of the professors from where they were released by the gendarmerie. Anti-Semitic student demonstrations continue in the streets daily.
