210 Jews Permitted to Leave Hungary; 32 Jews Quit Bulgaria

A party of 210 Hungarian Jews bound for Israel will leave Budapest November 15 for Marseilles where the immigrants will board a vessel for Haifa, according to information received here today. The group is part of 3,000 Jews who several years ago received permission from the Hungarian Government to emigrate.

A party of 32 Jews from Bulgaria and another party of 13 from the Greek island of Zakinthos, all survivors of the recent disastrous Aegean earthquakes, arrived in Haifa today among 142 immigrants. The Bulgarian Jews, who were permitted to bring all their belongings with them, reported that another party of 40 will arrive from Bulgaria next month.
