RE-ELECTED DIRECTORS OF TEMPLE BETH EL
RETURNS JEWISH EMIGRANTS
WITH RELATIVES IN AMERICA
LONDON—(J. C. B.1.-L-The situa-
tion of the thousands of Jewish emi-
grants in Antwerp has become a most
critical one following the return from
Canada of many eliploads of Jewish
refugees who were barred from en-
trance into Canadian ports despite
the fact that t icy a lowed affidavits
from relatives in America and checks
drawn on New York banks, sent them
by these relatives. In most cases the
return was due to the fact that the
emigrants possessed passports, not
from the countries from which they
originally came, but from countries
through which they passed en route
to America. These were not honored
by Canadian emigrant officials.
