National Coordinating Committee
Gives Alid To Refugees In U.S.
___ ___4


The National Coordinating Com-
mittee Fund., Inc., one of three or-
ganizations combined in this year's
United Jewish Appeal drive for $20,-
000,000, was formed in 1934 by 20 wel-
fare agencies dealing with the prob-
lem of European refugees in the Unit-
ed States.
The work of the N.C.C. centers
around the resettlement of emigrants,
principally from Nazi Germany and
Australia, in this country.
Approximately one-third of the
money collected in the Ann Arbor
U.JA. drive, running from May 1
to 10, will go the National Coordin-
ating Committee. Jewish students,
faculty members and townspeople are
being solicited by letters and personal
visits for contributions.
Officials of the drive to raise funds
for refugee work have constantly
stressed the fact that emigres must
be absorbed into the life of the com-
munity at no sacrifice of the prior
rights of American citizens for em-
ployment. They have emphasized that
refugees must not compete or come
into conflict with organized labor in
the United States. Nor should refu-
gees, these officials warn, become
members of an under-paid or under-
privileged class.
Will Place Refugees
Efforts are being made by the Re-
settlement Division of the NCC to
place refugees in crafts that are
not occupied by American workers.
The 200 local agencies that com-
prise the NCC and its affiliates pro-
vide these services:
1. They collaborate with refugee
committees in Europe and Central
and South America on problems of
German-Jewish migrants.
2. They help friends and relatives'
of prospective immigrants to this and
other American countries by giving
them information on immigration
3. They investigate the status of

relatives abroad and assist in ob-
taining permission for persons to go
from Nazi-controlled areas to lands
where they may enjoy temporary
4. The NCC and its subsidiary
agencies aid emigres who enter this
country on temporary visas to reach
their destinations in other lands.
Makes Travel Plans
5. They help immigrants by mak-
ing traveling arrangements and meet-
ing their emergency needs.
6. They assist refugees in the
learning of English and in becoming
naturalized citizens.
The number of persons calling at
the New York offices of the NCC has
increased in the last few years until
the average for the five-day week has
reached 7,000 individuals, or 1,400
visits each day.

tolic of Nanking, China, at 3 p.m. this
