Secretary of Labor Davis, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee; Bernard Deutsch, president of the American Jewish Congress; Max Kohler, ex-Congressman Perlman, John F. Simmons, chief visa officer in the State Department; Maude K. Whitmore, president of the National Women’s Republican League; Lillian Sayre, president of the Women’s Democratic League, will be among the witnesses who will appear Monday at the hearings before the House Committee on Immigration in support of or to explain facts relating to some or all of Congressman Dickstein’s six immigration bills.

Congressman Dickstein said that Secretary of Labor Davis is expected to give his approval to three of the bills extending and legalizing the status and period of unlawfully entering immigrants to July 1, 1924, and exempting parents and husbands from the quota. At Congressman Dickstein’s special request for a large hearing room it has been arranged to hold the hearings in the Naval Affairs Committee room in the House of Representatives Building.
