Lord Marley, British Laborite member of the House of Lords and chairman of the British Parliamentary Council of ORT, organization for the retraining of Jews in Eastern Europe, arrived here this morning on the S.S. Washington for a lecture tour in America.

It is believed Lord Marley will attend the meeting of officers of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees to be held in Washington on Oct. 16 and 17. He recently returned to his country after spending a year in So. Africa where he raised approximately $600,000 for the ORT Federation. He has worked in close collaboration with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Duchess of Atholl and Noel Buxton on refugee aid problems in England.
