(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

The only Jewish girl student attending the Medical College of the University of Clusenburg, received a letter this week from the Cuzist students at the University, warning her that if she does not stop attending lectures at the University it will be the worse for her.

“In view of our student ideal for the future, which consists of this: to clear out all foreign elements from the Roumanian Universities, especially the Jews,” the letter says, “we demand of you that you realize within the course of twenty-four hours that your presence at the Medical College may become a dangerous matter for you. We suggest that from tomorrow on you no longer come to the University. If you go on attending the University, we shall use whatever measures the circumstances require. It is useless for you to try to obtain protection from outside; instead of being of any use to you it will bring you into still greater peril. We warn you only because you are a woman.”

Under the auspices of the Yale Divinity School, a survey of the religious situation began yesterday and will last three days.

The Rev. J. R. P. Sclater of Toronto will speak on “The Public Worship of God”, as Lyman Beecher lecturer; the Rev. Reinhold Niebuhr of Detroit, editor of the “Christian Century”, on “The Religion of Successful People”, and Professor William Wallace Fenn of the Harvard Divinity School, on “The Theology of Nathaniel W. Taylor.” The Rev. Robert Russell Wicks of Holyoke, Mass. will give an address on “Keeping Open Roads to the Best Religious Experience”, and Dean T. Lew of the School of Theology in Yen-Ching University, will speak on “The Present Chinese Situation.”

A bronze bust of Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, subscribed for by Jewish citizens of Brooklyn, will be presented to the Eighth Avenue Temple, Brooklyn, next Friday. The presentation will be made by Rabbi Alexander Lyons. The bust was modelled by Louis Keita.
