(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Speedy action was urged in the Senate yesterday by Senator Walsh of Massachusetts for the seven bills introduced by him for amending the Immigration Act so as to alleviate certain hardships.

The bills introduced by Senator Walsh include one to exempt wives and unmarried children under eighteen of declarants from the quota; another to place in the non-quota class religious teachers and charitable workers in Eleemosynary institutions, giving them the same status now held by professors and ministers of religion; two to exempt from the quota unmarried children between 18 and 21 and husbands of American citizens; to exempt from the quota brothers and sisters and parents of World War veterans who are American citizens; one for the repeal of the National Origins Plan on the ground that it is not workable; a bill authorizing the Commissioner General of Immigration to issue a certificate of arrival to applicants for naturalization where there is no official record of their entry, but where the alien can prove he entered lawfully.
