(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Not a single Jewish student was admitted to the Kovno Medical College this term.

The University dean, in a statement to the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, gave as an explanation the lack of space in the laboratories. In other departments of the university, Jews are well represented, he said.
