(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An agitation for the introduction in German universities and colleges of a numerous clausus, aimed principally to limit the number of Jewish students, has been started by students of the University of Berlin.

By an overwhelming majority, what is termed the General Students Assembly adopted a resolution demanding the introduction of a numerous clausus for “students of alien blood.” The resolution, if realized, would, for the first time, it was stated, direct the agitation not only against Jewish students from other countries but against native born German Jews.
