Download PDF for this date

TEN JEWS WERE BEATEN AT WILNO UNIVERSITY, IT WAS REPORTED HERE TODAY, WHEN NATIONALISTS ATTACKED JEWISH STUDENTS WHO REFUSED TO OCCUPY “GHETTO BENCHES” ON THE LEFT SIDE OF CLASSROOMS.

THE RECTOR OF LWOW UNIVERSITY, PROFESSOR KULCZYNSKI, TENDERED HIS RESIGNATION TO THE UNIVERSITY’S SENATE COUNCIL BECAUSE OF A LACK OF UNANIMITY AMONG MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL ON HIS DEMAND THAT STRICT MEASURES BE TAKEN AGAINST NATIONALIST STUDENTS DISTRIBUTING LEAFLETS ON THE GROUNDS ATTACKING HIM FOR HIS OPPOSITION TO SEGREGATION OF JEWS. THE RESIGNATION REQUIRES THE CONFIRMATION OF A PLENARY SESSION OF THE SENATE.

A JEWISH BAKER, ABRAM ROSENSTEIN, WAS FIRED UPON IN A WARSAW SUBURB AND STRUCK BY SEVERAL REVOLVER BULLETS. HE WAS TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL, WHERE LITTLE HOPE WAS HELD OUT FOR HIS RECOVERY.
