The police authorities announced today that not a single spy suspect has been found among the estimated 1,000 Jewish and non-Jewish refugees from Germany, Czechoslovakia and Austria, who are concentrated chiefly in Oslo and its suburbs.

Nine prominent Jewish refugee physicians have been permitted to practice in Norway, it was disclosed, on condition that they work in certain areas to be specified by the Social Welfare Department. They will be allowed to start work on Jan. 1.

Among the doctors are a number of specialists, including Prof. E.J. Kraus, bacteriologist; Prof. W. Jaroschy, orthopedist; Prof. B. Epstein, pediatrician, and others. One Jewish doctor from Germany has also been admitted to practice in Sweden.
