Shipment of Dp’s from Austria to Germany Halts Because of Decrease of Infiltrees

No organized shipments of displaced Jews from Austria to the American zone in Germany are scheduled because of the relatively small number of refugees now entering Austria from Eastern Europe, it was learned today.

It is understood that the American military authorities in Austria have agreed to keep about 30,000 infiltrees in their zone, but as soon as the figure rises above that amount they will request that the surplus be shipped to Germany. However, since only about 150 refugees are entering Austria daily, it is not expected that the 30,000 figure will be reached for some time.
