Download PDF for this date

Student followers of the anti-Semitic Professor Cuza, severely beat Jewish passengers on a train near the Marasesti station, Roumania, according to reports reaching here. Among those beaten was a 70-year-old Jew. Other Jewish passengers, seeing their danger, pulled the emergency cord of the train, but for their pains were arrested on a charge of misusing the emergency cord.

When the train stopped, the Cuzist students disappeared. The police inspector at the station later gave assurances that a repetition of such anti-Semitic attacks on the train would be prevented in the future.
