German refugees are bringing to countries which will receive them certain industries which heretofore existed only in the Reich, Edgar Salinger, chairman of the Resettlement Division of the National Coordinating Committee for Jewish Refugees and Emigrants Coming from Germany, reported today to the 19th annual meeting of the Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations at the Hotel Astor.

Cheap jewelry is only one of the industries moving out of Germany, Mr. Salinger said. “History may yet record that the expulsion of the Jews proved to be a fatal step for the dictators and a boon for the democracies, he declared. He said refugees were being moved out of New York City to other parts of the country at the rate of 400 to 500 monthly.

There are 75,000 Jewish children in Germany between the ages of 6 and 14 who must be moved out first, and then 300,000 more from 18 to 45, half of whom are employable, declared Isidor Coons, executive vice-chairman of the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees and Overseas Needs.

Mrs. Jesse M. Bader, chairman of the women’s division of the National Conference of Jews and Christians, outlined to the 1,300 delegates a six-point program to combat prejudice. Mrs. Bader is a member of the recently organized National Advisory Council of the N.C.J.C. which is launching a nation-wide campaign to enlist women in a drive to promote amity.
