Modification of the Immigration law to permit 35,000 wives and children under 18 years old of declarants, to enter the United States was urged upon President Coolidge yesterday by Senators Wadsworth of New York and Butler of Massachusetts.

Senator Wadsworth said such an amendment would go a long way toward relieving a situation which separated families. Under his proposed amendment, which will come up in the Senate shortly, this number would be admitted. provided their passports have been vised in the last year. It is believed the President may look with favor on the proposal.
