Jerusalem (Jul. 2)
The entire student body of the Hebrew University walked out on strike today in an effort to enforce its demand for the addition of an agricultural school to the university.
By prearranged signal all activity ceased at noon and the students, with practically no exception, filed out of the classrooms onto the campus.
The strike came as the culmination of a series of student protest massmeetings in which the university authorities had been vigorously denounced for refusing the students’ demand that an agricultural faculty be founded.
Strike talk had been rife for weeks. Finally, a vote was taken which found the student body almost unanimous in its desire for a walkout.
The strike is the first that stately Mount Scopus has ever witnessed.
