Students Weigh 8-day Strike Against “ghetto” Decree

JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS PROTESTED TODAY AGAINST THE SEGREGATION OF JEWISH STUDENTS IN COLLEGES AS AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL ATTEMPT TO DEGRADE JEWS INTO SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS.

JEWISH STUDENTS CALLED A CONFERENCE FOR TOMORROW TO CONSIDER A PROPOSAL FOR A NATION-WIDE EIGHT-DAY STRIKE BEGINNING MONDAY IN PROTEST AGAINST UNIVERSITY RECTORS’ ORDERS ASSIGNING JEWS TO SEATS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF CLASSROOMS.

A DELEGATION FROM THE JEWISH DEPUTIES CLUB INTERVIEWED EDUCATION MINISTER SWIETOSLAWSKI AND PROTESTED THAT THE “GHETTO BENCHES” WERE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND CONSTITUTED AN ATTEMPT AT NATIONAL DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE JEWS.

THE MINISTER SAID THE MEASURE WAS INTRODUCED SOLELY TO PREVENT DISORDERS IN SCHOOLS. THE DELEGATION REPLIED THAT THE MEASURE COULD NOT BE REGARDED AS A MERE REGULATION AND WOULD NOT HELP IN MAINTAINING ORDER.

A CONFERENCE OF JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS LAST NIGHT ADOPTED A DECLARATION CHARGING THAT THE SEGREGATION ORDER WAS CALCULATED TO DEGRADE JEWS INTO SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS.
