(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Twelve Jewish students are on trial in Timischern Transylvania. They are acused of attacking Christian students.

The trial opened yesterday. It was stated that the Jewish students beat the Roumanian students in self-defense.

Eighty percent of the students in the graduation examinations in Bucharest failed. The largest part of this percentage consisted of Jews.
