Will Be Expelled and Drafted in the Army, Ministry Warns (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

On December 10, a fatal day for Roumanian Jews during the past several years, when the student organizations celebrate Student Day, the warning of the Roumanian Government to anti-Semitic agitators among the student body was repeated in a message directed by the Ministry of Commerce to the students of the Academy of Commerce.

The students of that college were preparing to indulge in anti-Jewish attacks on December 10, according to confidential reports received by the government. “The government has sacrificed some of its funds by granting subsidies for the erection of student homes. It has done this only for those who intend to study, but not for anarchists who interrupt the lectures and beat their colleagues. All provocateurs will immediately be expelled from the colleges and drafted into the army,” the message stated.
