Anti-semitism Crops out Among French U. Students

Anti-Semitism among French university students, hitherto unknown in modern France, is reported today from the university town of Tours. The students’ general organization decided to tax the so-called foreigners one franc for dinner in the students’ hostel. The Jewish students, who number 120 out of 300 members of the association, decided to resign and form a separate union.

This is the direct result of a growing anti-Semitism among the students who for some time now have refused to lend text-books to Jewish students or work with them in the laboratory. Under pressure of the students a number of boarding houses have refused to accept Jewish boarders.

The agitation is led by a professor in the school of medicine, Dr. Bosc, who recently published an article in the Medical Journal demanding that the university bar the “crows of the Danube.”
