May 29, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Acting rector Jacobovici of the University of Klausenberg had a narrow escape from death when a bullet was fired at him by one of a crowd of Fascisti students. Professor Jacobovici is one of the teachers opposing the enforcement of the percentage norm against Jewish students.

A number of University professors in Jassy, among them Prince Contacuzina, have received letters threatening them with murder for persisting in siding with the Jews.
