Uruguay Cabinet Acts Today on 500 Barred by Paraguay

The HIAS-ICA Emigration Association today expressed the hope that the Uruguayan Cabinet would act favorably tomorrow on the question of 300 Jewish refugees who arrived here on the Italian liner Conte Grande yesterday holding visas for Paraguay which had been cancelled by the Paraguayan Government. The refugees were permitted to land here and were lodged in private hotels. The Cabinet, at its meeting tomorrow, will also consider the fate of 200 refugees who had arrived here previously en route to Paraguay to find their visas cancelled and are under detention since December.
