See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Another Jewish Synagogue was the object of an attack by anti-Semitic students in Tejus. The inhabitants of Tejus are contemplating building a new church in the city. Some of the well to do Jews made considerable contributions for the purpose. In addition the Building Committee arranged a matinee performance, the income of which will go toward the benefit of the church. Leaving the matinee performance the students who were assembled in the theatre, attacked the local Jewish synagogue, smashed the windows and destroyed everything within their reach.
