(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jewish students of the medical college of the University of Vilna were again barred by Christian students from working in the clinic.

After a period of several weeks, during which the Jewish students were compelled to be absent, they were given permission by the dean to again come to the clinic. The Christian students, however, refused to admit them. During the riots, several were injured.
