Historic Shrine

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

WASHINGTON—President John-
son proclaimed E 11 i s Island,
through which millions of immi-
grant Jews passed en route to
American settlement, a United
States historic shrine.
He used the opportunity to ex-
press the hope again that Con-
gress would commit present "out-
dated" and "worn-out' immigration
laws "to history too."
At a White House ceremony, the
President issued the proclamation
and declared that he hoped the
present Congress "will draw on the
lessons of Ellis Island and enact
legislation to provide America with
a wise immigration policy adapted
to the needs of the 1960s."
The proclamation officially made
Ellis a part of New York Harbor's
Statue of Liberty National Monu-
ment. He announced he was ask-
ing Congress for funds to make the
island "a handsome shrine" to
commemorate the fact that 16,-
000,000 immigrants entered the
United States between 1892 and
1954, when it•was closed for immi-
gration processing.

The President said that the
great migrations from. Europe
"made us not a mere nation that
a nation of nations. These steer-
age immigrants entered into the
very fiber of American life, and
each made contributions to the
American cause."

Referring to bills proposed by
his administration which would
abolish the present national ori-
gins quota system, the President
said "This long overdue change"
should be enacted "without fur-
ther delay."
A number of noted American
Jews who passed through Ellis
Island as immigrants were cited
by name by the President at the
ceremony. He mentioned Irving
Berlin, David Dubinsky, Justice
Felix Frankfurter, Jacob Potofsky,
Admiral Hyman Rickover — who
was present at the ceremany —
David Sarnoff and others.
