All unclaimed funds deposited in Swiss banks by victims of Nazism will shortly be taken over by the state, it was indicated here today. An official statement to this effect will be issued soon.

The international Red Cross will arrange shipment of food and clothing parcels for Jews in Hungary deported from their homes in the cities to outlying regions, it was announced following negotiations between the international agency and the World Agudas Israel Organization. Consideration is also being given, it was reported, to extension of this plan for Jewish deportees in Rumania.
