Jewish Corpse Question Stirs Lithuanian Students

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Lithuanian students are beginning to follow in the footsteps of Polish and Roumanian anti-Semitic students in raising agitation that they be provided with Jewish corpses for dissection in the clinics of the medical college.

A meeting of Jewish students was called for the purpose of protesting against this movement.

The director of the clinics issued a statement to the press in which he declared that there prevails a shortage of corpses and that the Jews must deliver their share. This is not a national question, he stated.
