State Dept. Favors Proposal to Aid Emigration of Jews from No Africa

The State Department has expressed a generally favorable view and within a certain scope, willingness to consider, a proposal by chairman Francis E. Walter of the House Immigration Subcommittee for American support of the movement of North African Jews to Israel through the Intergovernmental Committee for European Migration.

This was made known today by the Department in a letter replying to a communication sent by Rep. Walter earlier this month to Secretary of State Dulles. The text of the letter was not immediately available but informed sources revealed that the State Department’s response to the Walter plan was, on the whole, favorable.
