Jews Protest Submission of Commerce University Officials to Demands of Anti-semites

The right of the anti-Semitic student German student body at the World Commerce College to be the sole official representative of the German students was recognized today by the rectorate of the University which also ratified the constitution of this student organization. The rectorate will, however, permit the formation of student organizations of other nationalities but only with minorities’ rights.

The Jewish students and Jewish leaders of Vienna are planning to appeal to the courts against the University officials’ action in submitting to the anti-Semitic students’ demand. The constitutionality of this action is also to be questioned.

In November the anti-Semitic students at the World Commerce University attacked their Jewish classmates and ousted them from the lecture rooms when the college authorities rejected the anti-Semites’ demand for an extension to the World Commerce University of the privilege accorded the anti-Semites at the Vienna University where the German student body is the sole official student organization.
