Further restrictions against the Jewish students in the German universities have been introduced limiting their use of the university reading rooms, the Frankfurter Zeitung revealed today. Jewish students up to one and one half percent of the total number of students will be permitted to use the reading rooms.

The Frankfurter Zeitung also called attention to the fact that Jewish students have even been forbidden to use typewriters intended for student use.

The numerus clausus is being applied in the dormitories as well-Jewish students are thus completely eliminated from university life, and the status of the German Jewish student is even worse now than that of the foreign student, the Frank-furter Zeitung pointed out.
