At least a score of students were injured, when a bomb believed to have been planted by members of an anti-Semitic band near a high school building exploded today. A number of passersby were also injured. Professor Oziemianski has been killed.

The headquarters of the Students’ Aid Association, an anti-Semitic organization, is located near the schoolhouse, and officials believe that the members of that organization are responsible for the latest of the bomb outrages.

The Minister of Justice today announced that those believed to be involved in the dynamiting of the ulra nationalist Polish papers, “Kurjer Polski” and “Rzeczpospolita” will be tried before a court martial.

Charges are made that the agents of the anti-Semites dynamited the newspaper offices, assuming that the suspicion in the bombing of these ultra nationalist papers would fall upon Jews.
