Jewish Students in Italy Excused from Oral Examinations on Sabbath

Luigi Medici, Minister of Public Education, ruled today that candidates for admission to or degrees from public institutions who were of the Jewish faith or were Seventh Day Adventists, would no longer be required to take oral examinations on Saturday, the day they observed as the Sabbath. Previously these students had been excused from the written examinations on Saturday and permitted to take them on another day of the week.
