State Industrial Commissioner Edward Corsi, chairman of the State Committee on Displaced Persons, revealed yesterday that offers of employment for DP immigrants in New York State have been pouring in since the passage of the Displaced Persons Act of 1948.

Estimating that approximately 50,000 displaced persons could be absorbed into the economic life of New York State, Corsi pointed out that needle trades employers alone could take 10,000 skilled workers. It was also estimated that of the 50,000 who might settle in this state, at least 50 percent could find employment on farms.
