House Committee Gets New Proposals on Immigration

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

A bill to admit as non-quota immigrants professors under contract with American educational institutions, irrespective of whether or not they have been serving abroad as professors, was referred by the Immigrant Committee to a sub-committee at its meeting yesterday. Under the present law, the non-quota staus is applied only to those professors under contract who have served as professors abroad for two years prior to their application for entry to the United States. The sub-committee is composed of Congressmen Vincent, Rutherford and Bachmann.

A bill to issue certificates of arrival, so that naturalization may be secured by aliens who entered the United States law-fully but regarding whose entry there is no official record, was also discussed. The matter will be taken up further at the Committee’s next meeting on Saturday morning.

A limited number of copies of the Prayer-book for the Jewish blind, printed in Braille by the National Council of Jewish Women, is available for free distribution, according to an announcement made by Mrs. Max Bloomstein, 5608 Blackstone ave., Chicago, National Chairman of the Council’s Committee on Work for the Blind and Sight Conservation to whom all applications for these copies are to be addressed. A free distribution of a number of copies is made possible through the gifts of Council sections in whose communities there are no Jewish blind.

Mrs. Bloomstein made the statement that Council sections are using Braille machines to make other literature available for the blind.

Rabbi Solomon Goldman of Cleveland, accompanied by his family, sailed on the steamer Providence for Palestine. During his trip abroad Rabbi Goldman will visit Russia. He will be gone until the fall.
