(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Dr. Lemke, professor of national economics at the Danzig Technical Institute, was suspended for one year because of injecting anti-Semitic propaganda in his lectures.

The action of the dean was taken when Dr. Lemke’s anti-Semitic inclinations became apparent due to his failing Jewish students in examinations he gave.

Jewish students in the institute constitute five percent of the student body.
