Protests against the “percentage norm” for Jewish students are pouring in on the Polish Sejm from all parts of Poland, more than fifty telegrams condemning the anti-Semitic proposal having been received by the Speaker today.

The anti-Semitic student section of the body at the Posen University is persisting in its fight for the adoption of the measure. They demand that the percentage of Jewish admissions shall be apportioned according to the Jewish population of the various sections of Poland.
