“Jewish students should not be elected administrative officers,” says a proclamation posted today on the wall of the University of Lithuania here today in connection with the student association elections. “How can Jews manage our interests when one of their eyes looks toward Moscow and the other towards Palestine?” the proclamation asks.

This is the first anti-Semitic proclamation ever posted at the University of Lithuania.
