The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (J.C.B.) will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

In consequence of the nationwide propaganda for the exclusion of Jewish students from the Universities and High Schools, the Minister of the Interior has under consideration a proposal to call a conference of all district officials to take measures looking to the suppression of the disorderly conduct by students.

In the meantime reports received from various parts of the country indicate that there has been no change in the students’ attitude. The students at Jassi decided to bar Jews from the campus by force, until the percentage limit comes legally into power.

The Gzernowitz student body decided to boycott the university, until such time as Parliament adopts the percentage limit against Jews.

Interpellations submitted by the Jewish Deputies Zirelson, of Kishineff, and Stern of Bucharest, demand emergency legislation empowering the Minister of Justice Altenau to take steps for the “energetic suppression” of the anti-Semitic agitation.
