(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Polish government will be petitioned to issue a decree regulating the supply of corpses for the anatomical departments of Polish colleges and universities in order to end the riots waged by anti-Semitic students against Jewish medical students under the pretext of the corpse question.

The decision to petition the government was taken at a specially called conference of representatives of Jewish student bodies in Poland held here.

The conference suggested that the government provide in the decree that unclaimed bodies be turned over to the clinics.
