Gen. Joseph T. McNarney, commander of U.S. forces in the European Theatre, has invited Dre. Stephen S. Wise and Nahum Goldmann, American members of the Jewish Agency, to confer with him, it was learned here today.

Dr. Wise and Goldmann have requested that the invitation be held open until next week-end because they will be engaged until then at the Paris meeting of the Jewish Agency executive and world Zionist leaders. It is expected that they will discuss all aspects of the Jewish problem with Gen. McNarney.

The Jewish Central Committee in Munich today accepted Gen. McNarney’s offer, granting it legal status. Formal recognition will enable the committee to cooperate with such official bodies as UNRRA and the various voluntary relief agencies operating in Germany. It will also give the committee the right to initiate consultations with military authorities on any Jewish problem.
