Jewish Students Issue Challenges for Thirty More Duels in Budapest

Success of Jewish Student Duelists Creates Panic among anti-Semites (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Thirty more challenges were issued by Jewish students of the University of Budapest to members of the anti-Semitic organization Turul, which arranged the anti-Semitic manifestations when the intention of the Hungarian government to modify the numerus clausus law became known.

A duel in Hungary is usually fought with sabres. Some of the duels between the Jewish and Hungarian students will be fought with firearms. The bravery of the Jewish students and the success which attended them has caused a panicky atmosphere among the anti-Semites.
