Corpse Controversy is Temporarily Adjusted

Download PDF for this date

The controversy which has waged here for some weeks past between Jewish and Christian medical students over corpses for dissection, has been temporarily adjusted by the rector of the University, who has ordered that the entire Jewish student body need furnish but one corpse. The rector, however, has imposed the restriction at the same time, that all Jewish students be concentrated in a room separate from the Christian students. The Jewish students in the meanwhile have submitted to the combined parliamentary clubs the resolution which they adopted at their recent demonstration meeting, indicating their inability to furnish Jewish corpses as demanded by the Christian students who banned them from classes until they shall have complied with their demands.
