Under the terms of the preliminary agreement between the Ica and the United Jewish Emigration Committee, it is proposed to set up a new Emigration Executive Council of twenty-six persons, of whom thirteen will be appounted by the Ica and the other thirteen will be representatives of the United Jewish Emigration Committee and all the organizations affiliated with it. The Council will elect from among its members, two directors who will conduct the emigration activity of Europe. The agreement has already been endorsed by the United Jewish Emigration Committee and ratification by the Ica is now being awaited.

This statement was made today by Mr. Latzki-Bertoldi, a member of the United Jewish Emigration Committee, in an address here to Jewish Pressmen.

Mr. Bertoldi spoke of conditions in the Argentine, where ## visited recently. The immigration restrictions in the the Argentine, he said, are as severe as in the United States. It was essential that all the Jewish organizations active in the field of emigration unite into one organization, in order to cope with the situation. Even this is insufficient. He suggests that an international body should be created, including not only Jewish emigration societies but those of all other nations suffering from the present immigration restrictions.
