(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish student, Lespesianu, completed the tenth day of his hunger strike today in the prison where he has been held for the last three months because he fired into the air when attacked by Cuzist students.

“I will die the death of the innocent,” he declared today in refusing food.
