(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A reply to the complaints of certain leaders of German Jewry against the classification of German Jews in the United States immigration records as Hebrews, was made by the United State Department.

The American Consul General here conveyed the reply of the State Department concerning this complaint to the Central Verein Deutschen Buerger des Juedischen Glaubens. It was reported that the State Department advised the government of the German Republic to make a formal request to the United States government for a change in the immigration entry blanks.

It was also learned that the representatives of the Central Verein have made representations to this effect to the German Foreign Office.
