The practice of race discrimination has now developed into an obstacle preventing the union between tht Austrian and the German student organizations.

Professor Hugelmann, vice-president of the Vienna Bundesrat, is now on a visit here for the purpose of negotiating with the Prussian Minister of Education, Becker, concerning better methods of cooperation between the Austrian and German student organizations.

It is reported on good authority that the Minister of Education, categorically declined to permit the Austrian organization to remain within the German student federation as long as it will not give up its practice of race discrimination. According to the provisions of the Austrian student organization “only Aryans” may belong.
