Reich Jewish Leaders Going to Central, So. America

A delegation of Jewish leaders will leave tomorrow for Central and South America to negotiate with the various Governments agreements looking toward settlement of German-Jewish youths.

The plan, which has been approved by central Jewish organizations here, provides for establishment of special schools in those countries to educate the young immigrants in the language and spirit of the new homeland. The schools would be maintained by Jewish funds.

According to the plan, youths between the ages of sixteen and twenty are to be maintained by Jewish funds from abroad.

The first group of emigrants, numbering about 200, is expected to leave as soon as the negotiations have been completed.
