Download PDF for this date

Mexican immigration authorities at Veracruz have refused admission to 104 Jewish refugees aboard the French liner Flandres who arrived there after being barred from Cuba, it was learned today. A French Line agent said the ship would sail for Havana. There was little hope, however, that Cuban officials would reverse their decision.
