Those Jewish students of Eastern Europe who had pinned their hopes
on the suggested Jewish university in the free city of Danzig are apparently
doomed to disappointment, for, according to a well founded report, the au-
thorities of Danzig have decided that it will be contrary to the best interests
of the city to have a university established for any one racial or religious
group. So the Jewish young men who are seeking higher education in the
refined Christian communities of Eastern Europe will continue to dodge
bullets, employed by the cultured Gentile groups to indicate their disap-
proval of over-educating the Jew.
