(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A meeting of Lithuanian students of the medical college of the University of Kovno was held here, at which a resolution was adopted demanding that the Jewish students supply Jewish corpses for dissection in the clinics of the college.

Lithuanian students refused to permit Jewish students to enter the clinics.

The University authorities declared they were unable to remedy the situation.
