Israel Chanin, son of Levi Chanin of this city, is one of the American students injured in the anti-Jewish attacks at the University of Vienna, it was learned here today.

Israel Chanin, who is twenty-five years old, went to Vienna two and one half years ago to complete his medical studies. He had a distinguished scholastic record studying at Central High School and the University of Pennsylvania. He came to this country with his parents immediately after the Armistice.

The father telegraphed the State Department yesterday for detailed information, declaring at the same time : “From the depths of my heart I protest against the brutal treatment of an American citizen.”

It is understood Chanin’s Jewish physiognomy singled him out for attack.
