Three-power Conference Hotel in Bermuda Bars Jewish Guests

Ian Mikardo, Labor M. P., this weekend charged that Jews are barred as guests at the Mid-Ocean Club at Bermuda, the headquarters of the forthcoming talks among President Eisenhower. Prime Minister Churchill and a French Government representative. Mr. Mikardo said that he would ask the Prime Minister to try to get the locale of the Three Power conference changed.

(In New York, the Travel Agents Committee to Combat Discrimination in the Travel Industry, representing 125 travel bureaus in the metropolitan area, today confirmed that the Mid-Ocean Club “has a policy of religious discrimination. It will not accept Jewish guests.”)
