(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Jewish students in the medical college of the University of Lemberg will have to cease work in the clinic for the lack of Jewish corpses.

The dean of the medical school informed the Jewish students that unless they secure twelve Jewish corpses they will not be permitted to continue their work in the clinic. The local Jewish hospital declared that so far as it can tell now, it will not be able to furnish the students with more than one corpse up to the end of the year.
