THE ACCESSION OF NICHOLAS II. 29 Bogolepov himself, the reactionary Minister of enlighten-ment, fell a victim of this agitation among the student body. He died from the bullet of a Terrorist who happened to be of unadulterated Russian extraction. His successor, General Vannovski ( 1901– 1902), though endeavoring to assuage the university disorders by a policy of “ kindly solicitude,” main-tained the former uncompromising attitude as far as the Jews were concerned. In view of the fact that, in spite of all re-strictions, the ratio of Jewish students at all universities ac-tually exceeded the norm prescribed by law, the new Minis-ter decreed that the percentage of Jewish admissions be temporarily curtailed in the following proportion: Two per cent for the capitals ( instead of the former three per cent), three per cent for the universities outside of the Pale of Set-tlement ( instead of five per cent), and seven per cent for the Pale of Settlement ( instead of ten per cent). Even the restrictions placed upon the admission of the Jews to the gymnazia were intensified. In 1901, Jewish children who had graduated from a pro- gymnazium1 were forbidden to con-tinue their education in the advanced classes of a gymnazium unless there was a free Jewish vacancy within the percentage norm— a truly miraculous contingency. The same policy was extended to the commercial schools established with funds which were provided by the merchant class and the bulk of which came from Jews. In the commercial schools maintained by the commercial associations Jewish children were ad-mitted only in proportion to the contributions of the Jewish merchants towards the upkeep of the particular school. In [ 1 A pro- gymnazium is made up of the six ( originally four) low-er grades of a gymnazium which embraces eight grades.]   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x For use on stand- alone, non- institutional computers only.
