It was by Richard to of sex president 5 Cleveland a and a Small group of sophomores who have been working Olgg Lisly among do. Classmates and have enlisted in their ranks Over Foj i a soph a Oref who have pledged themselves to remain out of the Ripper Clang clubs. Is said that they have approached the majority of the second year men and it is therefore probable that less than half of them will accept invitations when they Are tendered them. Jsu 11 Young Cleveland and his associates Are now receiving the rapport of a number of the upper class men who have not Only 1 expressed their h approval of the undertaking hut have tendered their resignation to the club to which the i Ionel among these Are George w.

The German government appointed the jew Julius Zweibaum As professor of zoology at the University of Warsaw. There were two other jews already appointed when Tai vtver8ity was opened under German administration. Somewhat similar in the spirit of friendliness to the polish jews is the report of a social Center opened for jewish labourers in . We have to consider this Ifft amp la incident As significant in View ii the restrictions formerly enacted against jewish immigrants from Foft cd in most of the German states. An accommodation to religious peculiarities is seen in the order of the Ger i an administration of Poland which allows the jews in the densely in plaited cities to erect for the information of the general Reader it May be explained Here that the rabbinic Law prohibits the carrying of any object not part of the attire in Sabbath. To obviate this inconvenience which would include the prohibition of carrying to kerchief the following evasive was de Vised.

Which considered such a devise an undue presumption of the jews. In the few German cities in which orthodoxy is very Strong As in Wuerzburg and Frankfort the municipal authorities gave such permission under the condition that the unsightly a be Ruby be used for ornamental purposes through i Vistic lamp posts. In former centuries the jews had occasionally to pay a special annual tax for the Privi bag of a go song the a be Ruby �?�jjl�op6 in of a rather suggestive is the fact that the agitation for a jewish Home in Palestine is in Many cases connected with the advocacy of jewish rights in lands of oppression As y if get were deemed necessary to reduce the number of jews in1 order to make their existence under equal rights less such is i reported from the above mentioned society pro Brae let in Italy and from clerical quarters where was i least anticipated.
