A group of 260 Jews, the second to leave the British some of Germany en route to Palestine since the institution of a British policy to include in the Palestine immigration quota displaced Jews from their zone, today arrived in Marseilles.

Part of the group immediately embarked on the S.S. Valona which sailed late today. The remainder will leave Thursday aboard the S.S. Cominos. The special transport which brought the refugees to Marseilles was organized jointly by the Jewish Agency, HIAS, and the Joint Distribution Committee.
