Jews Fear Renewed Student Disturbances in Jassy

Download PDF for this date

The students at Jassy University have been demonstrating repeatedly in the last few days against the Government, because it had not provided the subsidies for reopening the clinics at Jassy University. The Minister of Finance, M. Argetoianu, has now paid out a certain amount to the clinics, as a result of which they have been reopened, but the amount is sufficient only for about two months, so that it is expected that the student demonstrations will be renewed at the end of this time, when the clinics are again closed down. The approaching anniversary of the Roumanian antisemitic student movement, which occurs on December 10th., is causing a great deal of anxiety among the Jewish population, who fear that the coincidence of the date with a big student agitation against the Government may turn the agitation into an anti-Jewish direction, particularly since Jassy is the centre of the Roumanian antisemitic student movement, and the home of its leader, Professor Cuza.
