November 2, 1928

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

An official apology for the slur against Jewish girl students at McGill University was made by the Executive of the Students’ Council, the body which has complete jurisdiction over male student activities at McGill and over the “McGill Daily,” in which appeared the offensive editorial against Jewish girl students.

The apology, printed in the “Daily,” pointed out that the editorial, which did not represent student opinion at McGill was due to the negligence of the executive editor, who did not see it before it appeared in print and was characterized as the narrow-minded and biased personal opinion of the editorial writer. The apology goes on to say that above all, McGill University does not want to provoke any racial animosity. The writer of the editorial, a girl student in the last year Arts, has had to resign from the “Daily,” of which she was women’s editor.
