A Swiss parliamentary committee, debating what to do with money left in Switzerland by Jewish victims of the Nazis, voted Friday to give two-thirds of it to the Zurich-based Federation of Swiss Jewish Associations and the other third to the Swiss office for aid to refugees. The committee voted against the advice of the Swiss Cabinet which had suggested that one-third of the money remaining, $700,000, go to the Bed Cross.
