Demand Rescinding of Immunity Rule

Download PDF for this date

The general press, commenting on the anti-Semitic excesses of the University of Berlin yesterday, which brought about its closing for a period of two days, demands today that the university immunity rule be rescinded, and the entrance of the police permitted to quell disturbances whenever essential.

This demand is offered as an alternative to the proposal to keep the university closed for the entire semester should the university authorities fail to receive bonafide assurances from the Nazis that the attacks will not be repeated.

The University Senate meets today to decide whether or not to accede to the demand of the Nazis that the Jews be refused admission to the central hall. This, the University rector, Dr. Heinrich Lueders, declined to promise yesterday.

The Social Democratic students today publishes a warning that they will use force if the Nazi terror against the Jewish students is renewed.

The “Berliner Tageblatt” and the “Vossische Zeitung” demand punishment for the Nazi students.

The “Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung,” a semi-official organ of Chancellor Franz von Papen, avoids the Jewish issue, and asserts that the riots are harming the country. Therefore the Nazi disturbances and those of the Left Wing adherents must be prohibited.

The Nationalist students, whose program is closely associated with that of Herr Hitler, state today that they disagree with the Nazi demand for the ouster of the Jewish students.
