Attempt by Roumanian Antisemitic Students to Organise Anti-jewish Excesses in Bukovina Suppressed by

A High School student named Popescu has been fatally wounded in a fight which took place between military and a crowd of antisemitic students at Radautz, in the Bukovina yesterday, when the antisemitic students insisted on holding a demonstration which it was feared would lead to anti-Jewish excesses.

The demonstration had been prohibited by the local Prefect. A big crowd headed by High School students assembled, nevertheless, and when the soldiers tried to disperse them, they attacked the troops, several being injured on both sides. Popescu is not expected to recover.

Finally an order arrived from the Ministry of the Interior, giving permission for the gathering to be held, and the meeting was continued without any further incident.
