(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The administration of the University of Vienna was under fire today by the liberal press for its having granted permission for an anti-Semitic lecture to be given in the grand hall of the university.

The lecture was held under the auspices of the Vienna Hakenkreuzler organization and it was an attempt to prove that a numerus clausus against Jewish students in Austria is necessary. The newspapers charge the University administration with official anti-Semitism.
