5,000 Displaced Persons Expected to Arrive in U.S. Before End of Year, Usna Reports

About 5,000 displaced persons from the American-occupied zones in Germany and Austria are expected to reach the United States as quota immigrants during November and December, it was reported yesterday by Edwin Rosenberg, president of United Service for New Americans.

The new arrivals, of many nationalities and all faiths, will still leave the number of refugees and displaced persons reaching here in 1946 far below the 39,000 goal set by President Truman and permitted by the immigration laws, Mr. Rosenberg said. Nevertheless, he added, a major effort will be required by United Service for New Americans, whose work is supported by the United Jewish Appeal, to provide for their Welfare, resettlement and adjustment to American life.
