The International Conference of Student Bodies opened yesterday at Karlovci. Conrad Hofiman, an American Jewish student, was elected Chairman.

The case of the Jewish student was presented to the conference by Miss Haber, a delegate to the conference, who urged that the conference adopt resolutions urging the removal of the ###merus clausus against Jewish students and the granting of facilities to Jewish students enabling them to proceed from Eastern Europe to study in Western universities.An enthusiastic cheer was accorded the Jewish delegation by the delegates from India, Japan and Korea, when the declaration was made that the Hebrew University in Jerusalem is intended to ###k East and West, and accepts also Arab students.

Dr. Kose, representative of the League of Nations Labor Office, in his address complained that the League was not kept sufficiently informed with regard to the developments in student movements. Palestine, particularly the life of students there, is engaging the attention of the Labor Office, he stated.

The hall in which the conference is being held is decorated with many flags, ###duding the Zionist flag, the Blue and White.At a public reception given to the Congress delegates, Bishop Maximilian ###ted the Jewish delegates in Hebrew. Professor Parenta. Dean of the Theological Department of the University of Belgrade, in his address, declared that Serbia has never known anti-Semitism. As long as the Serbs will have the amhority in Jugoslavia, the country will never know anti-Semitism. The Jews have always been full citizens of Serbia, good patriots, appreciated by all,” he stated.
