See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Russian immigrant quota for the current year ending July is virtually exhausted, the J. C. B. is informed by the Department of Labor. Only 345 more are eligible to admission from Russia. The Labor Department figures thus show the entire Russian allowance of 21,613 has been practically exhausted in eight months.

The quota for Lithuania was entirely filled several weeks ago. Latvia is still entitled to 455 admissibles and Esthonia to 1202.
