Congressman Will Rogers Jr. has flown to London where he will seek British support for the plans to save the Jews of Europe formulated at the Emergency Conference to Rescue the Jews held here last week.

Rep. Roger’s flight was disclosed today at a press conference by his wife who stated that he will see leaders of British Jewry as well as high officials of the British Government. Peter H. Bergson, national director of the Committee for a Jewish Army, which sponsored the rescue conference, declared that representatives of the permanent committee formed there will go to Washington this week to bring its recommendations to official quarters. It is also planned to send delegations to Palestine and Turkey, he said.
