Some 150 European Jewish refugees arrived today at the Japanese port of Suruga from Vladivostok aboard the Japanese steamship Amabusa Maru, the Domei news agency reported. A number of them hope to be allowed to remain in Japan until they are able to settle in the Far East or in South America, the report said.
