Eagerness for news from home has become so great among German Jewish refugees in New York City, Dr. Joshua Block, chief of the Jewish division of the New York Public Library, declared yesterday, that limitations have had to be made by the library authorities on the circulation of German Jewish weeklies. The few copies of the Jewish papers that arrive from Germany are so avidly scanned by the numerous visitors that the library’s bindery receives them practically in shreds he declared.
