Reports from Argentine to the Jewish World Relief Conference here indicate that the South American country does not offer just now very enticing conditions for the would-be immigrants. Jews planning to come to Argentine are warned to strip themselves of all illusions that they will find there pleasant conditions awaiting them.

“The results of a recent economic depression are still felt in Argentine”, says the report. “There is a large number of unemployed, and business in general is not good. The immigrant too, on his arrival is usually exploited. The immigrant intending to come here should free himself of roseate illusions”, the report declares.
