Anti-Jewish excesses at University were continued today. Seventy-four Jewish students were seriously wounded, some of them fatally. Among the wounded is a Christian student who fought together with the Jews. The pogrom spread to the Jewish business quarter where a number of Jewish passers-by were set upon by Roumanian students. The lecture halls in the university are guarded by the police. The Jewish press demands that the government at last take energetic steps to prevent any recurrence of the riots.

A report from Temesvar says that Roumanian students attacked a performance at the Jewish theatre, throwing stinkbombs into the audience, cutting off the electric wires, and beating the Jewish public in the ensuing panic.
