April 29, 1937

An important conference of school authorities from all parts of the country was scheduled to take place here today in the wake of new anti-Jewish disorders at the Warsaw Business College, the Havas News Agency reported. It was called by the Ministry of Education.

Armed with smoke and stench bombs, Nationalist students almost completely wrecked the college offices. Rotten eggs assailed the rector when he sought to intervene.

A small political news agency operating under the name “Press” was suppressed here last night on the grounds that it operated against the welfare of the nation, particularly “through its false and biased manner of presenting questions touching foreign as well as internal policy.”

For several months the agency has conducted a strong campaign against Nazi activities in Danzig and among the German minority in Poland. Particularly popular with opposition newspapers, the agency defended democratic institutions when dealing with internal political questions.
