(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A protest against the Romanian Senate making the admission of Jewish students to the medical colleges conditional upon the Jewish community supplying Jewish corpses for dissection was made by the Union of Roumanian Jews.

The law passed by the Senate several days ago compels the Jewish communities to deliver corpses to the medical colleges for dissection. Otherwise, Jewish students will not be permitted to take part in the anatomical clinic work.

The protest of the Union declares that the law constitutes a breach of the constitutional rights granted to the Jewish citizens of Roumania.
