September 28, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Protesting against the possible appointment of Dr. Kisch who is a candidate for professorship, the students of the German University here are threatening to strike.

They announce that they are opposed to studying under non-German teachers and they demand that all such teachers be expelled.

In the event the University senate refuses to meet their demands they declare they will interpret that as indicating the Senate prefers the non-German professors to the German students.

They warn the University authorities too that in the event of any disturbances the university authorities will be held responsible for their refusal to satisfy the students’ demands.
