(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jewish students in the school of medicine at the University of Vilna will henceforth have to bring their own supply of corpses for anatomical study, the University Senate ruled today.

The agitation aiming to bar Jewish students from work in the clinics unless they supply Jewish corpses has been carried on for the past year by the Polish students at the University.
