More than half of the 200 Jews brought here by the Joint Distribution Committee from Communist-held Tientsin aboard a J.D.C. chartered vessel have already been flown to Israel, it was reported today. The Jews were transported to this British protectorate aboard the S.S. Cristobal, which was chartered by A.C. Glassgold, J.D.C. director in Shanghai.
