The allegations of the Nazi press, that the protest against the injuries sustained by American students during the anti-Semitic disturbances at Vienna University by the American Minister, G. B. Stockton, was merely formal, have no foundation in fact, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency is able to establish today.

Minister Stockton inquired from Washington as to the steps he should take and was instructed to protest with the Austrian authorities, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learns.

Similarly the Nazi statistics on the number of American students at the university, which the Nazis set at 120, are false.

There are a total of 300 American students at the University of whom 200 are specializing in various subjects. The Jews constitute approximately 50% of the American student body.

The four Americans injured during the attacks prefer that their names be not divulged, particularly since none of the injuries are serious.
