Legislation which would bar all immigration to this country for at least five years was demanded here yesterday by Mrs. Julius to Talmadge, president-general of the Daughters of the American Revolution, addressing an lowa conference of the D.A.R.

Alleging that 3,500,000 refugees are in the United States, Mrs. Talmadge said that “our ancestors were different from the refugees of the present time. They time to this country with the pioneer spirit, but those who come to this country now come with the outstretched hand.”
