Goldmann to Renew Austrian Reparations Talks Today in Vienna

Dr. Nahum Goldmann, head of the executive committee of the world Jewish groups claiming compensation from Austria for Jewish victims of Nazi persecution, will arrive here today to meet again with Chancellor Julius Raab on this subject.

A meeting which was scheduled for today between the Chancellor and Moses Beckelman, head of the team of experts which is conducting the negotiations for the Jewish claims, did not take place. It was explained that the Chancellor wished to consult with the Cabinet tomorrow on the negotiations and must, therefore, postpone the meeting for a few days.

Government experts, meanwhile, continued to study the figures contained in the claims submitted by the Jewish experts. It is believed that the entire situation will be cleared up after the talk between Chancellor Raab and Dr. Goldmann.
