(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The anti-Semitic student demonstrations which have been renewed here, assumed a more violent aspect today, with the arrival of Professor Alexander Cuza, the notorious anti-Semite.

Cuza, who came here to attend the opening of the Parliament, to which he was recently elected, was awaited at the station by hundreds of anti-Semitic students, who dragged his automobile through the streets.

The police and soldiers intervened, dispersing the anti-Semitic demonstrators, who thereupon invaded the Jewish quarter, smashing the windows of Jewish houses and posting placards everywhere, calling upon students to join the Christian League against the Jews.

Several of the anti Semitic students have been arrested and are held by the police.
