(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

New anti-Jewish excesses occurred in Bucharest and Jassy.

Groups of Roumanian students marched around the boulevards, Jelisawitha and Lipskani, in Bucharest and attacked the Jewish passersby. Many Jews were murderously beaten. Among the Jews who were seriously injured were Sager, Josufovici, Samijuda and the Jewish student Gessler.

Following the virtual introduction of the numerus nullus in the medical college of Bucharest University, the terror directed against the Jewish students having made the college “Judenrein.” the anti-Semitic students have now set up a guard at the law school, charged with the task of preventing Jewish students from entering the lecture hall.

According to the Roumanian newspaper “Dimineata,” no Jewish students are attending the law school in Bucharest since the beginning of December, due to the persecutions of the Cuzist students.

The offices of the newspaper, “Renasterea,” a Zionist organ, were raided by the police and the issue confiscated. In that issue, an article was published in which Minister of the Interior Goga and Minister of Education Petrovici were charged with anti-Semitism.

In Jassy, Roumanian students, followers of Cuza, mistreated the Jewish students yesterday. Jewish passersby were attacked. When the excesses showed no signs of abating, the chief of police ordered gendarme patrols to guard the city.
