The scheduled liquidation of the International Refugee Organization operations will bring untold hardships to tens of thousands of displaced persons, William Rosenwald, a national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, said here prior to his departure for New York. He warned that creation of a successor organization would leave many problems unsolved and cause new ones “whose significance cannot be exaggerated.”

The problem of European Jewish refugees remains a pressing one, Mr. Rosen wald declared. He expressed the conviction that almost every Jewish displaced person in Germany desperately hopes to emigrate to a free nation where he can start life anew. The “hard-core” cases, he said, were in a desperate position.
