Anxiety When Permission First Granted on Leaders’ Personal Guarantee (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A last minute decision by the Maniu governent rescinds the permission granted the students’ organization by the Minister of the Interior to celebrate Students’ Day on Monday.

The government ordered that the lectures in the universities and colleges are not to be interrupted for the day.

In explanation of the change, it was declared that the information received by the authorities apparently did not justify confidence in the promises made by the leaders of the student organizations that the celebrations would be held in strict order and that no anti-Jewish attacks would be permitted.
