Two groups of Jewish rofugees from Nazi-occupied lands arrived here today on the steamers Serpa Pinto and San Thome, which sailed from Lisbon, Portugal. They were met at the pier by representatives of the Hebrew Sheltering and Immigrant Aid Society of New York who routed them to relatives and friends in various parts of the country.
