Bucharest police has refused to sanction the departure here of a number of Jewish students, irked by the recent anti-Semitic outbreaks, for other countries where they planned to continue their studies. The Ministry of Education has also declined to furnish these students with transfer cards necessary for such a purpose.

According to the Roumanian newspaper “Lusta” the government’s attitude in the matter is based upon its desire that no first hand reports of the recent disturbances in Roumanian universities be disseminated in other countries.

Another anti-Semitic disturbance occured in the library of the Bucharest university, when a number of Cuza’s adherents seized three Jewish students and threw them down the stairway. One of the students was seriously hurt. Following the incident, library officials ordered the library closed until “quiet is restored”.
