Police with Hose-Pipes Disperse National Democratic Students Attempting to Demonstrate Outside Warsa

Lemberg Polytechnic has been closed down by the authorities for an indefinite period, in response to the protest strike declared by the National Democratic students there, on account of the suspension and reprimanding of some of their leaders for demanding the expulsion of the only Jewish student, the first ever to have been admitted to the Institute of Agriculture.

As a kind of sympathy movement, but ostensibly as a protest against the increased University fees, the National Democratic students at Warsaw University called a protest demonstration for to-day in the University courtyard. The University authorities informed the organisers that no meeting would be permitted outside the University building, and when the demonstrators arrived they found bodies of police there who turned hose-pipes on them and thus dispersed the demonstrators.
