Student Disturbances Continue Also at Vienna University: One Student Belonging to Jewish Self-defenc

Nazi students wearing Hitlerist uniform constituted themselves to-day as a bodyguard to keep order at Vienna University, and tried to drive all the Jewish students out of the University building. The Jewish students resisted, however, and some fighting took place.

The police arrested one student belonging to the Jewish self-defence, while the members of the Zionist student union were singing the “Hatikvah”.

The fighting was continued in the streets near the University building, until police reinforcements came up and restored order.

A conference of the Rectors of all the schools at the University has been called for Monday, to consider what measures to take to preserve order.
