Students in Paris Wear Yellow Handkerchiefs in Protest Against Yellow Mogen David

French students in Paris who have openly demonstrated their sympathy with Jews by donning yellow Mogen Davids, today appeared in the Paris streets wearing yellow breast-pocket handkerchiefs after being ordered to remove the Mogen Davids.

Many of the students who could not find yellow handkerchiefs dyed their white handkerchiefs yellow and promenaded along the boulevards with their Jewish friends who are required to wear the yellow star on the left side of their outer garments.

The Paris press today reported that the Riom trial of Leon Blum, Gen. Gamelin and other French statesmen would soon be reopened.
