The office maintained by the Jewish Colonization Association for the purpose of aiding Jewish emigrants stranded in Constantinople was closed today.

There are still a thousand Jewish refugees stranded in Constantinople who are unable to proceed further. The refugees consider the closing of the Ica office as the disappearance of their last ray of hope.
