The University authorities ordered the closing of the University buildings and campus for the week end, due to the inefficacy of the guard and the fear of the renewal of anti-Semitic riots on the campus on the part of the Hakenkreuzler students

During last week end, fifteen Jewish students were injured in the fray which resulted from the Hakenkreizler attack.
