(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jewish young men and women who seek an opportunity for higher education in Hungarian universities and colleges will not be helped in any way by the change in attitude of the Hungarian government toward the numerus clausus law.

Under pressure of the popular protests, Count Klebelsberg found himself compelled to increase the general number of admissible students by one-third. Insofar as the Jewish applicants are concerned, however, they will be treated in accordance with the five percent quota as practiced last year.
